R U a 100% IU vet? Do you have the ID card from VA? If so, you can use the MCG's ... You need a letter from the VA to get the ID card. Once you have it, you can also use commissary.

I believe it's a DOD ID card, not from the VA.

Yeah Larry, I''m not sure who actually processes the card, but he needs the VA 100% letter to get it ... if he has it, that's the first step. But it allows 100% DAV to use the services once he received that card. I'm guessing any base will have the ability to issue it. Not positive tho', as I've never gotten one.

U said 80% injuries, but 100% DAV ... that usually means you got upgraded from 80% to 100% because you are rated as unemployable due to your injuries.

I sent you an email and can discuss this in detail if you email me back. If you didn't get it, check your junk file.

Very simply, If you are 80% disabled and rated 100% due to Individual Unemployability, you are entitled to a military ID card (assuming you were honorably discharged). You have to get a disability letter from the VA. Take that letter along with proper ID to any military installation and they will issue you a military ID card. That card will allow you access to all military facilities and services. PX. commissary, Famcamps, Lodging, MWR, etc. Just like when you were on active duty. If you are married, take your wife (and kids too,I think). They will be issued a card also. In essence, your VA disability defines you as a military retiree for purposes of utilizing services. Your card will most likely be indefinite. Your wife/kids' cards will have to be renewed every few years.

I think he is saying he is has a disability rating of 80%, but it is all service connected.

Did you retire after 20? Were you medically retired?

Norsado,
If you are 80% and no longer able to maintain gainful employment, then you can petition the va for individual unemployability (iu). That would pay you at the 100% rate and authorize a retired military id card. As far as i am aware, being active or retired military, or a DOD employee is the only way you would be able to use the famcamps.

Honorably Discharged Veterans Rated 100 Percent Disabled by the VA (Non-Retirement Eligible):

Honorably discharged veterans who are non-retirement eligible, but separated from the Uniformed Service and not entitled to retired pay, but rated 100 percent disabled from the VA due to a Uniformed Service connected injury or disease, are eligible to a DD Form 2765 (Tan) ID card. Discharged veterans and their family members are eligible for commissary, exchange, and Morale, Welfare & Recreation privileges only. They are not entitled to TRICARE or medical care through the Uniformed Services MTF. However, they receive their medical benefits from the Department of Veterans Affairs, the Civilian Health and Medical Program of the Department of Veterans Affairs.

In order to receive the DD Form 2765 or DD 1173, a letter from the VA must certify the veteran is entitled to commissary and exchange privileges. This letter may indicate whether a medical reevaluation is necessary as well. A copy of a DD Form 214, reflecting an honorable discharge is also required. The veteran is enrolled in DEERS as a Disabled American Veteran Temporary, or Disabled Veteran Permanent, based on the letter from the VA. This status is reported electronically to DEERS as "DAVTMP" or "DAVPRM" from the VA or verified by the approval letter the veteran or family member received from the VA.

Note: USD P&R Memorandum, May 7, 2008, Commissary and Exchange Access by Surviving Spouses and Dependents of Honorable Discharged Veterans Posthumously Determined 100 Percent Disabled authorizes access to military commissary and exchange shopping privileges for surviving spouses and dependents of honorably discharged veterans who are posthumously determined to have possessed a service-connected disability rated as 100 percent.
