    Are widows of deceased veterans eligible? My husband dies in 1995, and I raised our children and paid off my home (How??) Would I still qualify?

    This site initially asking for the last four of my Social Security denied entry unless the full number was submitted. THAT WON’T HAPPEN.

    So I’m on AAFES filling out my verification form With ID and password and all that good stuff and then it says, after submittal, “Space not allowed”…..I checked to make sure there were no spaces and still comes the same error. From here, the only space I know of is the outer variety.

    AllHotels/Motels offer discounts to Veterans, Seniors, Military etc. Don’t go for the “Best Rate” available. That is always the smallest discount, Senior Discounts and better than Veteran/Military.

    Why am I not surprised that the “View Deals” button doesn’t work.
