Veterans helping veterans: They may be veterans like myself who may have served one or two tours and were discharged because of a disability or were a POW or were given a Purple Heart and are receiving care a VA hospital or not. If you have a rating 0-90 and do not have a VA health card you can get that ID by following the instructions. Some of the bases in your area have golf courses, like mine, and we cannot get on the base to play the course or use the commissary or PX. Well that all changes the first of January. I am posting this link if you are interested in seeing if you qualify and how to sign up. Be nice to go on vacation and be able to play a course in the area where you are relaxing at a reasonable price. Here is the fact sheet with all the requirements and FAQs....

Yes, you should be able to take guest and play. They will pay a higher rate of course, as it is prioritized for playing by (rank, active, retired, DoD Civs, Guest, etc). They are usually limits as to how many guest you may bring.
Problem will be getting on base, (visitors pass available at the gate, carpool is best option). Also tee times are hard sometimes because of many active duty players are "unwinding" from deployments or just plain stress downtime.
Best way is to research course via website or contacting Morale, Welfare, and Recreation (MWR) office/website for the course. Sometimes you can call the course directly and inquire. Some bases have par 3 courses that are lighted too.
So enjoy my brothers and sisters.......well deserved benefit after all these years..... Don't forget your DD214/VA ID card/Discharge orders, or some kind of proof of service.
