My wife works at the va, if you guys have any questions please feel free to pm me or if you go down to the hospital on 215 and Pecos she can get you guys hooked up.

I can try to get an answer from her for you mac about your id card.

As for service connection for hearing loss, it doesn't even have to be loss of hearing. You can get 10 percent for ringing in your ears which is indicative of hearing damage, stating you got it just qualifying with your weapon or whenever you noticed it WHILE IN THE SERVICE.

If it's for a disability it's not based on your income at all and even someone with 10 percent service connected can get an id card.
Too much income can prevent getting into VA in many, but not all cases. So can other health plans. I had both problems.

But there are many exceptions. Such as all Vietnam Vets qualify for VA regardless of anything else. That's what got me in.

And I think they sometimes change the qualifications. So the only way one knows for sure is by going to their local VA, even if one did NOT qualify years before.

I guess alot of the reason they are taking in Vietnam vets with almost no questions asked is the agent orange exposure is causing a lot of issues now.

The va is starting to see rare types of cancer and organ failure that is attributed to exposure to this crap.

Boots on ground is when you were in a combat zone and it changes a lot about a claim and benefits. Ageant Orange for Vietnam vets and burn pits for the younger guys have made things interesting.

I thought I would not qualify until somebody mentioned to me that ALL Vietnam vets qualify--no exceptions--not for any reason.

Don,

Just wanted to double-check. . . ALL Vietnam Vets qualify for VA healthcare or is it just for an ID card?

Thanks.

For full healthcare. However, if your income is fairly high, you will have to pay co-pays for some services. Perhaps fifty bucks at the most.

I had kidney stone about a year ago and went to the VA emergency here in Reno. IIRC, that cost me fifty bucks a few weeks later (a bill comes in the mail).

Yes, and one thing I learned from VA is that MOST vets who have been exposed to Agent Orange have no idea.

One example (there are countless others):

At Da Nang, Agent Orange got into the water supply. Many REMF Marines who never even left the basecamp were heavily exposed to Agent Orange.

And even I spent a little time at Da Nang, even though I was army. To and from R & R in Japan. I was in Da Nang over night twice.

I assume I was exposed too, not only from Da Nang but also from being a grunt in the Central Highland jungles. However, I was never tested for Agent Orange, but I can ask for such. I seem to be in fairly good shape for being 66, so I don't worry much about it.

Bullets.com has a military discount of 20% on March Optics scopes. Just be sure to scroll down and apply on their online application form then enter the coupon code at checkout.

I'm not sure what their affiliation is with grizzly.com. but their customer service is top notch. Their shipping is fast and reasonable.

Just an update if it hasn't already mentioned, HD Mil Discounts only on certain items and the cashiers does not know which items are eligible for the discount.

I called Lowe's and they STILL have Military Discounts on ALL items except labor... Lowe's is now my new go-to hardware store! :thumbsup:

The only item that I am aware of in SSF as well as Reno HD that gives no discount on is on wood. And that is the same with Lowe's.

Maybe said before now somewhere in this thread, but if not please add the following that I know of for sure:

VORTEX
Sightron
CZ-USA
Cabela's (being added VERY soon to their online/phone orders)

Now days when I decide I want something or another, I ALWAYS check up on whether or not the company selling it (often the MAIN USA OFFICE) offers a discount to retired military or not. If they do, it is often VERY worthwhile and most just want a pic/copy of your ID either faxed or attached to an email. I have found that some places offer a HUGE discount, generally taken from their "MSRP", but that mostly works out to ne a couple hundred or several hundred bucks off of the "street price"....just do the math!!

Not gun related but Guitar Center has a 10% military discount. I was not in the military. I found out because one of my former business associates asked for it when he would order from them. Turns out he was never in the military. What a POS.
