We don't have to worry here in the UK when thinking about Service discounts as there aren't any.yeah, exactly. i've been out of the navy almost 30 yrs now and i've never even thought to use the veteran discount offered at lowes and stuff. i only did 6 yrs on submarines so i really don't even consider myself a "vet" since i didn't make a career out of it. I think people who retired and made a career out of the military would deserve discounts as appreciation for their time, but with only 6 yrs in, i feel like i was just passing thru!
besides, i got out an was a commercial diver and made in one month what i made in one year in the navy...if anything, its the active duty enlisted folk who could really use some benefits. it was bad when i was in, i remember i had to drink schaffer beer the whole time i was in the navy.
