Navy Dads

Ok, I have a question. I am a U.S. Army Vietnam veteran. I called up there at GL this morning. They told me that you can only shop at the NEX store if you are a retired veteran or if you are totally disabled. Considering my service to my country, this seems a little unfare.

Shop with your sailor........

I suppose that it would have something to do with restricting access to the base. It would be impossible to maintain security if the NEX was open to everyone that ever served. As Paul suggested...just shop with your Sailor....and it is CASH ONLY....
