OK here's one that I didn't see mentioned vettix.org If you area veteran or active you can get tickets to various events for a simple handling fee. Here in the Chicago area I have attended the PBR event at Allstate arena ( cost $15 handling fee for up to 4 tickets) I have also attended a petatonix concert again my cost was the $15 handling fee for two tickets. An just back in December my wife and I attended a mannheim steamroller christmas concert 15$ for handling of two tickets. Check them out vettix.org

Nice. And thanks tdiller. I certainly was not aware of that one. I’ll bet there’s more out there that we’re not aware of.

I continued to think that until my Father took me to a VFW post several years later. The members there opened my eyes to what the VA is all about.
The VFW was able to get most of my Military papers.
Which i had been told were all destroyed in some Maryland Military Records Storage Facilty fire

The National Personnel Records Center fire of 1973, also referred to as the 1973 National Archives fire, was a fire that occurred at the Military Personnel Records Center (MPRC - part of the National Personnel Records Center) in Overland, Missouri, a suburb of St. Louis, on July 12, 1973, striking a severe blow to the National Archives and Records Administration of the United States. MPRC, the custodian of military service records, lost approximately 16–18 million official military personnel records as a result of the fire.

Sorry to hear about your experience GT. The VA (heath/hospital part) now has groups prioritizing vets based on their service, disabilities, and financial status (for possible cost sharing) now. Not sure when they started this. I became more aware of VA benefits and health care after I retired with disability and became a life member of the DAV. Though my rating is not much, I use the VA health care and (fortunately, thank God), I have been well cared for.

Thanks Wallamatogus. May I add that one may need to ask about these discounts since a number of places either don’t advertise or the ad is located in a not too conspicuous place. I’ve even had to ask about senior discounts even though I look like one, lol.
