Commissary and Exchange Privileges

Commissary and Exchange Privileges

Unlimited exchange and commissary store privileges in the United States are available to honorably discharged veterans with a service-connected disability rated at 100 percent, un-remarried surviving spouses of members or retired members of the armed forces, recipients of the Medal of Honor, and their dependents and orphans. Certification of total disability is done by VA. Reservists and their dependents also may be eligible. Privileges overseas are governed by international law and are available only if agreed upon by the foreign government concerned. Though these benefits are provided by Department of Defense (DoD), VA does provide assistance in completing DD Form 1172, "Application for Uniformed Services Identification and Privilege Card." For detailed information, contact the nearest military installation.

You can also go to https://www.ebenefits.va.gov/ebenefits/about/feature?feature=va-letters for VA Letters to download and modify VA letters, including Civil Service Preferences, Commissary and Exchange Privileges, Service Benefit Verification and Proof of Service Card.
