2019 Veteran’s Day Discounts

2019 veterans day discounts

As Veteran’s Day approaches, we remember the sacrifice that so many of you have made and take the time to thank you for making the sacrifice. This year, we wanted to let you know of a couple of Veteran’s Day discounts that you can look at this weekend.

Your VA Disability Rating is CRUCIAL

Why is it so important to be diligent and motivated to file your claims and get the compensation you deserve? #1 reason is that you are entitled to all the benefits our country has to offer! Your contribution sets you above other Americans, you served this country voluntarily without complaint day after day. Many of you have been injured, given the run-around, and been ignored. It is a shame we have to jump through hoops and wait years for our government entities to recognize our worth. This is the reason I decided to devote my life to providing insight, information, and help to all those that serve and have served! 

Before using any of these military discounts, a couple of things to keep in mind:

A lot of places don’t publicize their discount, so ask wherever you go.

Everywhere will make you show your military ID or retiree card to prove 

This isn’t an all-inclusive list, but we did include some of the biggest names we found for you.


Give Something to Those Who Gave.

Vet Tix provides tickets to events to reduce stress, strengthen family bonds, build life-long memories. They desire to encourage military families to spend time with their families and local communities. They do this by setting them up with incredible life experiences.

Vet Tix can provide tickets for sporting events, performing arts events, educational, concerts, and family activities across the US! 

You must sign up online and verify service before being enrolled. Once becoming apart of the program, you will request tickets to events which interest you, pay a small delivery fee, and receive your tickets! Super simple but a great way to spend time with family.

State Benefits for Military and Disabled Vets

Did you know many states offer significant benefits to their veterans, besides VA disability? Most states also provide tax breaks, specialized license plates, free college and employment resources, hunting, and fishing licenses. There are some states which even provide their veterans with cash bonuses just for serving in the military.

Search your state VA benefits, the VA has a list compiled for easy reading. Be sure to check out their website, there may be a benefit available to you or your family that you didn’t know about!

Free Admission to parks for Active Duty, Military and Families

Parks programs across the country have plans in place to host you and your family for a free or reduced price. 

Before showing up to any of these parks, call the box office to see what’s needed to qualify. If the military member is serving overseas, some benefits could still apply. As always, you will need to show a valid military id, and you may need to verify through the ID.me site.

Student Loan Discharge Application Process

A benefit in which total and permanent disability military members could be eligible for through the US Department of Education is the student loan forgiveness program.

They will be able to walk you through the process of getting the discharge application. These papers will show that you are, in fact, totally and permanently disabled and eligible for the procedure. You will either need to attach supporting documents or have your physician complete Section 4 of the application. You will then the completed form. If you have been contacted by your TPD discharge program based on information from the Social Security Administration or VA, then you are not required to provide supporting documents to show that you are P&T,

Space-A Military Travel

Space-A or Space-Available flights are authorized to service members and their families to travel around the world at little to no cost. Formally known as MAC flights, if you have a few buffer days before or after your trip, this is a great option to travel at a low price. 

Most flights have a travel page that you can checkout for updated on when your flight will be leaving and allow you to book. 

You may begin booking flights from as early as 60 days out. However, preference is given based on the travel category, not rank. For more tips on boarding Space-A flights, check out this website to get the most out of your travel plans.
