The Defense Commissary Agency (DeCA) has been hard at work spreading the news to Veterans about their ability to shop at Department of Defense commissaries.  Engaging with Veterans, DeCA has learned that while many are now utilizing this benefit, others still are unaware.

In the U.S., you may be eligible for commissary and exchange privileges if you meet one of the requirements listed below.

If you’re a Veteran or service member, one of these must be true. You:

  • Have a service-connected disability rating and were honorably discharged, or
  • Are retired from military service, or
  • Are a former prisoner of war, or
  • Are a member of the Reserves, or
  • Have received a Purple Heart or the Medal of Honor

If you’re a family member, one of these must describe you. You’re the:

  • Surviving spouse of a service member (if you haven’t remarried), or
  • Primary family caregiver of an eligible Veteran (recognized under the Program of Comprehensive Assistance for Family Caregivers), or
  • Dependent or survivor of an eligible service member, or
  • Dependent of an eligible member of the Reserves
