From Golf Courses to Commissaries: More Details About Access to New Military Benefits for 4.1M Extra People
from Military Times
For the 4.1 million people who are newly eligible for shopping privileges on military installations, defense officials have provided some more details on access to the new shopping and recreation benefits open to them as of Jan. 1. Officials have outlined a temporary solution for veterans who have a service-connected disability, but their income is too high to qualify for a Veteran Health Identification Card, or VHIC. That VHIC is the required credential for eligible veterans to gain entry into installations, to shop at commissaries, exchanges and to use certain morale, welfare and recreation facilities.
