Top Ten Military & Veteran Discounts and Freebies
While there are a large number of organizations that support the military, these ten stand out for the exceptional value they provide to America’s military and veterans.
1. Vet Tix
Founded and managed by veterans, Vet Tix is a non-profit organization that collects donated tickets from major league sports teams, venues, event organizers, and military supporters in order to give away free tickets to active military, veterans, and their families. When demand is greater than the supply of free tickets, the site holds a lottery between verified users in order to determine who will receive the free tickets. Verified Troop ID members can use their Troop ID login to prove their eligibility for the program.
