can Vets use some of these military campgrounds?

I'm a Vietnam Vet and just started RVing about a year ago. Are there Government / Military campgrounds that Vets have access to?

cheers

Military FamCamps are generally open to retired military and DOD, but not to vets in general (unless the camp is also open to general public, as some are).

HERE is the best website for military campgrounds.

Check each one out that you had a question about. Some do allow 100% VA Disabled to use them. Not all but some.

Shouldn't have to do a search to see if am eligible or not. Being a VET should be enough.

Bet a standard VET from the DESERT STORM era is accepted, but not a standard VET from another era. Cuban Crisis.

Sorry, being a veteran of any conflict is not enough. The FamCamps are open to active duty and retired military and DOD, and (as stated above) in some places 100% VA disabled.

If you had chosen to make a career out of your time in the military, you too would have had these fabulous benefits, right along with using the Commissary and Exchange .

There's no such thing as a "standard" vet. We are either vets or not. The fact that we were in VN or Iraq or anywhere else has nothing to do with it. My 23+ years in service to this country counts no more than the four years (or less) that a vet spent in Iraq. We are all brothers-in arms and should remember that point.

The way I was treated when I returned from VN by other Americans bordered on criminal. I'm ecstatic that today's vets are treated with the dignity and respect that they deserve. I hope you will reconsider your statement in order not to lump yourself with those so-called Americans who "greeted" us when we came back from VN. Bitterness and jealously has no standing when concerned with vet affairs.

My statements primarily concern your last paragraph. I can't speak for the first one.

I'm sure that is incorrect!

I was drafted at 23 years old. I was in from 63 to 65. I had a great job at Delta Air Lines. I couldn"t wait to get back to civilian life. The Army tried every way they could to get me to reenlist. I was proud to serve my country, but I was ready to return to civilian life. Many of my buddies stayed in. They deserve every benefit they get. I DO NOT think the people who only spent a couple of years in service should get the same benefits as people who serve 20 or more years. That is what is wrong with our country now. Everybody wants everything for free. FAIR IS FAIR.

I could not have said it any better. I agree with you 100%, and WELCOME HOME my brother. To all the others now serving and other vets "THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE".

Looks like Golden and I shared the same experience(s) when returning.
And I agree with all else he said.
