This is the site that I use when travel and use Military Famcamps.
U.S. Military Campgrounds and RV Parks - Home
They will tell you who can camp at their bases. Each base has different rules, I have seen only active military, DoD, active civilian personal and those in transit at some bases.

Also keep an eye on the current DEFCON (FPCON) levels. We just went to Bravo and, yesterday, it took me 30-minutes waiting in line to get on base at the AF Academy to park Rocky in the lot. (No guests allowed...only those with DoD CAC badges or military retired cards.)

I also use that web site, but I have never been refused unless full in the pecking order I listed. But I also have a DOD Card, plus my wife. Also my decal for the wind shield. They were supposed to get rid of them (Wind Shield), but now that has been left to the Base Commander so some you still need them others you don't. So it's best to get one they last 5 years....

I have nothing to add but wanted to thank everyone for their service and sacrifices.

I'm a 100% disabled Vet and have a DoD card to that effect. Had it for 15 years. Use it at all military CGs and Famcamps and haven't been turned down yet. Big discounts also. I use it at commissaries and PXs at all bases that I visit, to stock up on food and clothes.

Thank You for that. People thank me all the time It shocks me being from the Viet Nam time in the 60's. Sometimes I just don't what to say, what a difference time makes.....

It's always been interesting to me that the hippies and college kids from the 60's and 70's were more immature than us kids in the military in many ways (not to mention "no discipline"). It's their improved maturity due to the passage of time, plus 2 more wars, that's opened their eyes to understanding that it's not us soldiers, sailors, airmen, marines and coastguardsmen that are the problem - it's the politicians.

I grew up an Army brat and as such was taught about respect, honor, pride and patriotism. I remember pausing for taps every night at five followed by a cannon going off. I unfortunately was unable to serve but not for lack of trying (back injury). I think that social media has played a big role in educating the public to the needs of soldiers and their families. I hope it continues to do so. I now return you to your regularly scheduled disabled vet/military campground thread.

Someone asked me years ago why I still salute RETIRED officers that I served with in Vietnam, most of them retired Generals. My answer is "out of respect". I know how they got to be retired officers. The same reason I refer to others as Maam and Sir. Respect.

Getting a "Disabled American Veterans" ID card

At Robins AFB (middle Georgia) they issue "Disabled American Veterans" ID cards for access on base. I don't know anything about what access/services it will allow (I am 100% service connected and combat related disabled but also retired... so I use my retired ID) but you could inquire of bases you plan to visit. FYI... the Robins AFB site to schedule shows what you need to get the ID. See: https://rapids-appointments.dmdc.osd...BuildingId=534 ... near the bottom of the page is the ID description. These ID issue requirements should be the same at other bases; however, access it provides could differ. Also, the link I provided was for Robins AFB, but you can probably work thru the site and get to whatever base/post is near you.

Thank you for your service.
