When you wear your "I SERVED" bold yellow letters on black hat and a "Spartan Helmet/Moron Labia/Sheepdog/Dysfunctional Veteran" T shirt and harass and harangue the poor girl working at an American Eagle counter because AE doesn't have an optional Veteran/military Discount policy. When you get loud and your rotund wife wearing a Garfield T shirt, greasy sweatpants and a pair of jelly sandals starts barking out loud and holding up the line of other shoppers to demand to see the Manager for that Veteran/Military discount.
That's an example I've personally seen of people being dishonorable about an OPTIONAL discount practice.

The Store managers should tell that fat woman the only discount they have right now for the military is a free case of slim fast and then dump 2 cases in her cart and send her on her way.

1SG (Join to see) I ask for Veteran Discount/Senior discount. If they provide it, fine, if not, I pay without a word of complaint. I have not witnessed anyone asking for the discount, and being rude or disrespectful when it was not offered.

for my money, i am a disabled vietnam vet who will never shop at HD! CEO is a rabid Trump fan and after this week in Syria, no military or vet should partake of this store. Shame on them!!

CPT Jim Kotva - About five years ago, I had someone come to our table and put down ten dollars for our meal. I was uncomfortable, but the person refused to take the money back, so I thanked him. I had my Marine cap on. Last year, as I was ordering at a Freddy's restaurant in Branson, MO, one of the ladies behind the counter, came up to the cashier and told her that she would pick up the tab. I thanked her but told her that I could pay for it. She insisted and stated that her brother had served and wanted to pay for my meal. I was uncomfortable but accepted her kindness. At the same Freddy's, but a week later, I had a lady come to my table while I was eating. She explained that she respected the hardships that veterans have experienced and tried to show her respect by distributing home made boxes. The small box that she gave me was knit with the American flag on top and the colors red, white, and blue on the sides. Inside the box were a couple of crosses and a 1971 Kennedy half dollar. The kindness of some people is amazing.

Because I usually wear one of my Marine caps, I do occasionally get thanked for my service. This is better than the open hostility that I faced when I served, and the years after. Thank you for serving Captain!

It's overplayed when you think it's an entitlement.

PO2 Stephen Welch - Lowes and some other stores here in Dallas have the same. I park there sometimes, but mostly i don't ..figure there are some older vets in my area or maybe those more challenged with walking than I am.
