    AFAIK, the TSA does not use the Veterans designator. It is useful for Veterans benefits and "should" eliminate the need to carry a different card.

    This is the designator for Veterans:

    In Texas, the designator is the word "VETERAN" located right under the expiration date. Shouldn't be an issue for TSA or anybody else for that matter.

    home depot does not offer a discount to all veterans. only retired veterans and active duty military. And they limit that discount to a total of $500. and no online purchases. other veterans - discount only on mem day and veteran's day. and good luck - its a crap shoot at the store. Lowes on the other hand does offer a 10% discount year round for all military and veterans.

    Apparently not. They give it to me every time and I only served 4 years decades ago.

    Now there's a switch. Free in NY and a fee in FL. Unlike, say, Purple Heart plates, which cost nothing in FL but are "vanity" plates with fee in NY.

    you're lucky. its not their written policy, and like I said - its a crap shoot at the stores.
