What are the requirements?
It is essential to remember that most companies require proof of military service. The VA Benefits Photo ID Card is a reliable option for veterans who receive health benefits from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). If you do not have a VA Benefits Card, the VA can provide you with a Veterans Identification Card, which is widely accepted as proof of service. In some states, veteran status is included on ID cards and driver’s licenses, providing an additional ID card option. And as a last resort, most companies will accept a copy of your DD-214 as proof of service.
However, it is wise to check with individual companies to confirm their participation in Veterans Day programs, as not all franchises participate in their national chain’s initiatives.
