Base Access for Service Connected Veterans was created by Karlheinz51
Hi all, new poster here. I am one of a number of service connected (SC) veterans that have recently gained right to base access for MWR, commissary and exchange uses. What I have run into is the difficulty in getting access to the few bases I've tried for entry. The common issue seems to be you have to get access to each and every individual base you want to visit - and that's the primary problem. Each base seems to have a different set of operating hours at the Visitors Center - most open function Monday - Friday 0800-1600 or there abouts. Miss those hours and your out of luck - as I found out at NAS Key West and Patrick AFB. I see that 100% SC veterans and purple heart or POW veterans are issued a DOD ID Card that automatically gets you access and wondering why this ID option can not be given to other SC veterans? I travel frequently in my campervan and would love to be able to just stop in at various bases on my trips but having to match those very limited hours can be daunting. Anyone else have these issues? Suggestions?

Good question. Similar concerns for me. Also was an RM1, btw.
