I recently got military Space A privileges but haven't used them because of the infequency of flights. It's like hearding cats. I am spoiled and used to non-revving on the airlines. But that went away when I medically retired.

How does one go about getting this? Coast guard vet here.
You have to be retired or have 100% disability rating from the VA. I had to take my disability paperwork to the visitors center in order to get a day pass to get on base. Then you have to go to the Pass and ID office where they will issue you a military ID. If married, your spouse will be able to get a dependent ID. However, dependants cannot go Space A. But base privileges can be handy ( the auto hobby shop saved our butts).

The beurocracy from the military is hell. They remind me of the vogals from hitchikers guide to the galaxy.

Same with the VA, but without the VA, we'd be screwed. So I'm gonna get everything I can from Babylon while I can.

The VA has never dropped 2,000 pages of paper in my lap and asked me to sign it like the Army did.

They have their hoops but nothing as bad as trying to ETS from a base.

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$150.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $150.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
