Made a trip to Lowes the other day. I took a copy of my DD214 to get the 10% discount as normal. The clerk at Lowes informed me that they no longer accepted the DD214 as proof of military service. I was advised that I had to have a VA card, an active duty card or a green retired veteran card. I did 8 years in the military including one tour in Viet Nam. Yet I can't get a lousy 10% discount at Lowes because I am not presently active, retired or have not yet needed to go to the VA. I was always told that the DD214 with picture ID was the best form of identification available. Seems not. Kind of pisses me off. Goodby Lowes.
