Businesses require proof of military service, which can include a VA Universal Access Card, Military I.D., DD-214 (discharge papers), Veterans Service Organization card (VSO’s include groups like the VFW, DAV, AmVets, MOAA, FRA, and the American Legion), or in some cases businesses will accept a picture of the veteran in uniform.
