Big stores refuse to recognize State of N.H. ID for U.S. veterans

To The Daily Sun,

In the year 2012 the state Legislature passed legislation allowing veterans to have their status indicated on their drivers license, thus providing us with a photo I.D. proving our service to our country. A veteran's photo I.D. is something that major stores always require before they will provide a veterans' discount.

Unfortunately Home Depot and Lowe's will not accept the new license with honorable veterans status noted on the card for an everyday veteran's discount at their stores. They only accept active, retired, reserve I.D.s and cards issued to veterans who have filed a medical claim against the V.A.

So what about all the other veterans who served but do not meet the stores criteria, the answer is, sorry no discount without the required documentation! Our New Hampshire drivers license is not acceptable!

We and the State of New Hampshire should boycott both of these stores until they change their discriminatory policy!

What do you think?
