It always pays to ask for a military discount everytime you buy something. Brusters ice cream is one of my favorite places that offer the discount.

Probably so, but hopefully only if someone really *is* or *was* in the military...

There's always been a part of me wanting to go into a store or a restaurant somewhere and ask for my "18-54 year old male civilian private sector employee discount" and watch the reaction....

Ah, yeah -- I just noticed that in the press release. That can be inconvenient, but at least it would stop a bunch of yahoos who never served a day of their life pretending that they did.

DH (honorably discharged, 1974) used the Home Depot discount on Memorial Day and had to show proof, which he did have with him because he really really wanted that $5 off
