Thread: ID card

    ID card

    Evidently, I need a new ID card. I shop at Lowe's and Home Depot alot and was getting the 10% discount. I have been told I need a current ID card. Mine expired in 1972. Where and how do I go about getting a new one? Thanks for any help.

    You actually got away with using an ID card that has been expired for the last 40 years? I don't even know how that's possible. I would suggest trying to go to your nearest military installation (regardless of what branch the base is under) to get a retiree ID (they are blue now), depending on what your DD214 says anyway.

    I believe unless you were medically discharged,the only ID card you can get is the VA card.

    Neither place questioned it. It is proof I was a veteran, that is what was required. I really don't see why it would be questioned. But, Lowe's did let me make the purchase. I will see the next trip. We do have a VA clinic here. They will steer me I guess.

    Visit any VA Medical Center, bring your DD-214 and they will issue you a VA I.D. card with your picture on it.

    Some VA Centers issue it right away, others mail it to you, 10-14 days.

    Good Luck.

    The Home Depot Veterans Discount Program*. Same thing at Lowes*

    As we announced earlier this year, we offer a year-round, 10 percent discount, up to a $500 maximum, at our U.S. stores to all veterans, active duty military personnel, reservists, retired or disabled veterans and their immediate families. We offer this discount to thank them for their outstanding service to this nation and to help make their homes more comfortable and safe. Customers requesting the discount should present a valid military ID.

    Semper Fidelis,
    Rocky

    WRONG, at lowes you just have to be a Veteran.

    Home Depot requires a valid VA ID card, however if you want the 10% discount you must have Service Connected on your card. I just recieved my new card with SC printed under my photo last week. Lowes just requires a VA ID card.
