Question

I have been awarded 100% TDIU w/o any future exams. Although I have a 70% service connected disability. My wife gets Champ VA healthcare. My question is, do I have Armed Forces Commissary & Exchange privileges. If so, how do I go about getting to the PX? What proff will I have to provide and where do I get that proof? I live pretty close to wright Patterson Air Force Base.

I do have the VA letter stating that I am 100% TDIU.

I'm not sure how that works but if you call your local DAV or American legion they should be able to point you int the right direction. I'm curious, I am waiting on a decision on tdiu myself and I was wondering how long it took for you to get a decision?? I have been waiting since sept 24th for a decision.

That letter, believe it or not, will not suffice. Get on the phone and call the VA 1-800# and tell them that you need the MWR (Morale, Welfare and Recreation) letter from your local VA Regional Office. Then simply take that letter to the main gate at Wright Patterson and they will direct you to the Visitor's shack where you will be photographed and your tan card will be issued. Take all the family members with you so's they can get their cards also. Also take the vehicle registrations and proof of liability insurance for each vehicle that you will be using on base and they will issue your vehicle windshield stickers at that time.

Enjoy this benefit. The Wife and I usually make a monthly run to the Naval Air Station for "supplys"! We get a kick out of it................but, then, we are easily entertained!

This is easy. Call the 800 number and ask them for a letter that certifies you as a Permanent and totally disabled vet entitled to a MWR ID card.

Take the lettter to Wright Patterson and go to the office that has the Deers ID machine.

Take the following:

1: letter.

2: Marrriage License. (If you were maried while in service to the same person she may also be in DEERS.

3: The Kids Birth Certificates.

They will make the cards on the spot and you can get your vehicle sticker as well as Commissary and PX at Will. ALso you can use base recreation.

A vet friend of mine just got his 100% P & T award and already got his base card -you need to google the closed place you can get one at -

He brought his DD 214 and his VA award letter with him.Also the VA gave him a VA Form 21-8760 to fill out for the base card which he brought there too.

He went to the VARO to get that but if they didnt send it I am sure you can find this form at the main VA web site under Forms.

Gee -I read this too fast-

Others gave different advise but maybe they mean the same form?????

I was told I had to make Appointment first with the Reserve Station near Elmira for the DEERS card.

Just popping in with this:

I checked the website of my nearest installation for info on getting ID Cards. They STRONGLY recommend you call in advance and get an appointment. From what I read, Walk-Ins can be stuck waiting for ages for a slot to open between folks with appointments. If it's a busy day, you might have to come back.

<br><br>I guess it depends on how many people they serve at your installation. I suspect the big places like Ft Bragg or Norfolk NAS would have a lot of people coming through. Maybe the places in the warm, sunny climates would do a lot of Retirees at this time of year?

Anyway, it's a thought.

Good luck!<br><br><br>ETA:&nbsp; LOL, Berta... I read <i>your </i>post too fast or I would have seen that you called ahead for an appointment, making my same point.&nbsp; Heh, me not so swift!<br>

First- congrats on the 100% and thank you for your service, Jerlor!

All good advice - since things seem to vary, probably best to call the I.D. office where you're going and ask them.

And, regardless of what that person says, bring ALL documentation mentioned :wink:

  • question-001.jpegLooking for Answers? Here are tips for finding the answers you seek.

     

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. To post, you must register. Registration is free. You can register for a free account here.

     

    You can read the forums without registering.

     

    Tips on posting on the forums.
     

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of ‘I have a question.
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story. Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.

     

    Leading to:

     

    Post straightforward questions and then post background information.

     

    Examples:
     
    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    • I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
       
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
        • I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?

     

    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial from your claim?” etc.

     

    Note:

     

    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed.
    • This process does not take long.
    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. The review requirement will usually be removed by the 6th post. However, we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.
    • This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before hitting the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims, and this helps us do that.
