I’m a disabled veteran rated at 80%. Next month I’m traveling across the country and in doing so I’d like to lodge at military installations along the way. Can I get on base to stay at military lodging facilities during my travels?
A1: FYI, my experience with this was and is, 'No Problem'. I am not disabled and on one occasion called Base Housing, Navy Lodge in Alameda CA (Base now closed) and made reservations in advance, and was told all I needed was my I.D. Card. Had an enjoyable stay. : ) The Navy Lodge set up an entry pass for me at the gate beforehand. (CC) 3/24/19
A2: You can only get on base if: 1. You are a retired military veteran with an active Retired Military ID card, or 2. You have a 100% disabled rating (I am unsure if it?s has to be 100% P&T or just rated 100%), or 3. You are 100% IU (again, I?m unsure if it?s 100% IU P&T, or if it?s just 100% IU)
With numbers 2 & 3, you have to print out the commissary letter and take it to a military base and get an ID made. (SM) 3/24/19
A3: I'm also a veteran, and my wife and I stay at military TLF's almost every time we travel to see family. We did this even before I got my disability certification so you should have no problem as long as you have a military ID. (DD) 3/24/19
