Expanded on-base shopping for many US veterans faces hurdles overseas
from Stars and Stripes
The new rules that extend on-base shopping privileges to an additional 4.1 million U.S. veterans can't be applied in some countries and face restrictions in others, officials said. So far, outside of the United States, the exchange and commissary benefits are only available in Germany, through a process that includes getting a Veteran Health Identification Card in the U.S., being vetted for base access and then registering with U.S. and German customs offices.
