Since quite a few members here are veterans, I thought I pass along this little story, and reminder. The occasion of installing a new engine in the wife's Tahoe necessitated a trip to Sears for a few tools my kid(s) decided should be in their toolbox instead of mine. As I'm paying for my stuff, the nice cashier said, “You eligible for a 20% veteran's discount if you want it”. Dumbfounded, I said I didn't know that and I appreciate the discount, but how did she know I was a veteran? She smiled and said “I don't think someone who is not a veteran would have “USMC” tattooed on their arm”. (Since the weather's been warm I was wearing one of my Harley Davidson tank tops.) “Oh, that makes sense”, and added I also have my veteran's status officially noted on my driver's license if she needs to see that. She explained to her knowledge this 20% veteran's discount is on tools only, but don't be afraid to ask for it if I'm buying something else. Short story even shorter is this discount saved me about 40 bucks on this purchase alone. I almost always forget, but if you're a veteran go ahead and ask for it.
