Home Depot here advertises that they give a Vets discount, but they always say whatever I want to buy there doesn't qualify. Lowes always comes through, though, and does what they advertise. I shop Lowes whenever possible.

only time HD refused the veterans discount was on a special order--cabinets I believe. No issues at all doing regular shopping. Don't know about Loews as there isn't one within a hundred miles or so.

Not sure about rest of country but in Missouri home deport only gives disabled vets discount at all times. Only on Veterans Day and Memorial Day do they the give it to all vets. The have printed cards for cashiers to compare VA I’d cards. That said most cashier don’t bother to check closely and give it to everyone.

On the other hand Lowe’s gives 10% to all vet all the time and even have a few reserve parking spaces for Vets not sure but that may be a local thing since we are close to Ft Leonard Wood. Every cashier here also says” thank you for you service”
