    At the beginning of the year I had to travel to the VA Hospital and took the DAV van as usual. Of course there were several vets on the way there with me and the subject got around to me not wearing a Veteran hat. I always wear a cap but usually my favorite sports team or a Subaru hat. The guys decided I had to have a hat and bought me one at the commissary in the hospital. Nothing special about the hat, no units or actions specified like some, just "U.S.Army Veteran". Well a new cap gets worn a lot and very soon I found myself getting discounts for being a vet a places I never knew did that. All my favorite restaurants give 10% ~ 15%. Helps give my waitress a better tip. :) I bet I'll have saved almost a hundred dollars wearing this hat so far. :)

    Ours has Military Parking right up front too. That discount I found without the hat and came in handy on the new water heater a couple years ago. :)

    Apparently so does ACE hardware. Since I always was an avid ACE Rewards member I guess they never thought to bring that up. But I told her yesterday I was now 65 and get the Wednesday Senior Discount. She said, while observing my hat, but you get the discount everyday with the Military Discount. Yikes! when I think of the money I could have saved.
