Veterans can now register to have access to a commissary or Post Exchange on a Post. You will go to the visitor’s center to be processed. A background check and finger printing are part of the vetting process. A veteran can also get his/her veteran name placed on the driver’s license by bringing a copy of their DD 214 to a driver’s license facility.
FYI: You can file an initial claim (that has not been previously decided by the VA), by submitting Form 21-526EZ, Application for Disability Compensation and Related Compensation Benefits.
More information and resources on the Blue Water Navy Act, eligibility, and how to file a claim, can be found online.
There is a Hines V.A. Hospital Advocacy group which deals with any issues a veteran might have with their health care (Phone 1-708-202-2716).
