Guy at the Little America truck stop in WY was talking about it so I looked it up on google and it sounds like it is true.
Anyone taking advantage? I do not carry my dd214 around with me but maybe just an id with the word veteran will do?
Have you heard TA is giving free meals to vets on July 4th?

I dont trust these Veterans discounts. Its usually a way to rip veterans off. Ill bet its only for certain items only.
Truck dealer in Houston had $3000 discount for vets. I negotiated a good deal. Just before signing, i said dont forget the $3000 military discount.
I said the F150 right there with Air Force plates and my CDL here show im a vet and ive got a dd215 in my truck.
Oh, “thaank you for your service” but that discount is only on those trucks over there .... i checked those trucks comparing age, mileage, and models and wear.
Guess what ... the trucks were identical, except that they were priced more .... guess how much more .... thats right, they were overpriced by $3000.
So with the $3000 discount they would b the same as there had been no discount.
At the time i didnt know that was illegl, but ive since read in Air Force times that the pentagon has a team of people who investigate that and refer cases to the US Atty’s offices for prosecution.Snailexpress, drvrtech77 and FlaSwampRat Thank this.
Yes it was a separate menu of choices.
They have done it for a few years.
It is nice to be thanked once in a while.MartinFromBC Thanks this.
I have never had any problems at any Petro or TA with just my DL showing veterans status. I also carry a copy of my photo in uniform and a copy of my discharge but have never been asked to show either. You can eat from the buffet bar at most or the menu.
I dont like them thanking me for my service. Its become too routine and meaningleass.
Plus, i was a cop in the Air Force, never left the country or saw combat, so i dont value my status as a veteran as much as those who’ve seen combat.
buzzarddriver and kemosabi49 Thank this.
