Thank you for your service Stan. I think you are right and you were miss-informed. If you look at the "Facility Info" section of this website, each campground has the authorized users. I think all the "DAV" listings are for 100% DAV. Happy Fathers Day

Sorry you were mis-informed. All of the regulations on "Who is authorized patronage of MWR facilities" states "Veteran with a honorable discharge that has a 100% service connected disability" is eligible. Maybe you can work on getting your rating upgraded to 100%??

Here's an article that includes copies of the applicable regulations.

Thank you for your service.

Stan,
Since you are 70% disabled, you could probably get unemployability at 100% pretty easy. All you need to do is apply and in your writeup tell how you can't work and have your Dr. write something for you. I would almost bet you could get unemployability.

There's a FAQ on this website that has details on obtaining the proper ID Card for a 100% DAV with a service-connected disability and an honorable discharge.

Gratz on clearing that hurdle.

Ima noob here so a noob Q. Isn't the VA issued ID card enough or is there some other ID card we'd need to show at MCGs to get in?

I have my retiree card as well, but curious about the VA card too.

The VA card is no good for access to the military installation and/or the campgrounds.

The FAQ has details on obtaining the proper DD Form 2765 ID Card.
