  1. TSgt Robert M. Wade JR, (ret) says:

    Give a vet a simple thank you or better a handshake or a hug. That’s all we really want is to know we are appreciated for our sacrifices. While I agree that a vets spouse also sacrifices a lot I feel the spouses posting in here are just sounding greedy and not appreciative of their own military spouse I served for 24 years and my wife was there beside me the whole time and she would never ever expect what these people in here are expecting. She was honored when I retired that government and the military recognized her for her sacrifices as well and she loved the two letters of appreciation they gave her. I have never taken advantage of any free meals from businesses that offer them but I appreciate the thought. And as far as Home Depot vs Lowes is concerned I have also experienced heartache when asking if I get the 10% discount at Home Depot but never at Lowes and that is why Lowes will always get my business.

  2. I know it is a bit late but…..last year when I went Homedepot to pick up a snow blower the cashier rang up my bill and then noticed the retired veterans hat I was wearing and then told me she had to clear the bill and ring it up again because she did not give me a 10% discount I had no idea before this time about the discount. Thank you Homedepot. I have been shopping there ever since

  3. Lowe’s also gives a 10% discount every day to military personnel. active duty and veterans.

  4. How about Wal-Mart, what do they offer to our people in the military? They don’t even give their associates the day off as a holiday if you are a vet.

  5. Thanks for all the comments! Please feel free to share any additional comments or discounts via our Contact Page.
