VetVerify.org Opens for Veterans

VetVerify.org, is a single point of entry to verify eligibility for Veterans to shop all exchanges’ online stores and it opened more than two months ago. This shared services verification site for military exchanges uses information from official government records to verify shopping eligibility.

Since its official opening June 5, 80,000 Veterans visited VetVerify.org to check their eligibility to shop beginning Nov. 11.

Seeking beta testers

Veteran Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines and Coast Guard members who register early and are verified, may be selected as beta testers to shop early prior to the official launch on Veterans Day 2017.

“At the Army & Air Force Exchange Service, we are honored to again serve all honorably discharged Veterans for life,” said Director/CEO Tom Shull. “Four years ago, the exchanges began working to recognize the service of millions of Veterans without exchange privileges while generating additional funding for critical budget-constrained military Quality-of-Life programs. We are proud to stand with our sister exchanges as we welcome our Veterans home to their military family and protect and preserve hard-earned military benefits.”

The exchanges currently provide more than $300 million in support to military Quality-of-Life programs annually.

We are proud to stand with our sister exchanges as we welcome our Veterans home to their military family and protect and preserve hard-earned military benefits.

Welcoming shipmates

The Navy Exchange Service Command (NEXCOM) is preparing its website to deliver an exceptional customer experience to Sailors.

“We are excited to be welcoming our shipmates back to the NEX,” said Retired Rear Adm. Robert J. Bianchi, NEXCOM’S chief executive officer. “Inviting Veterans to shop online is just another way for us to honor them for their patriotism and service to our country.”

Coast Guard Exchange leaders are excited to salute the service of all Veteran Coast Guard members.

“The Coast Guard Exchange is delighted to join our partners in extending the online shopping benefit,” said Capt. Robert Whitehouse, commanding officer of the Coast Guard Community Services Command. “We pride ourselves in serving those who protect and defend the Homeland and are excited to be part of this effort.”

Keeping communities connected

Marine Corps Exchange leaders said there may be no better example of the strong identification former service members share with a specific service branch than Marines.

“I proudly support the online shopping initiative and can think of no better day to launch it than on Veterans Day,” said Cindy Whitman Lacy, Marine Corps Exchange director of business and support services. “It’s an honor to now provide this service and benefit to our well-deserving Veterans. Once a Marine, always a Marine.

“This initiative is one of many to keep our community connected.”

    Forget it! If you do not believe that I qualify even though you have the capability to verify my qualification and refuse to do so then I do not believe you deserve my joining!
