DOD/Army civilans can't shop on Ft. Stewart!

I have a friend that spent 10 years in the army and is currently employed as a civilian worker on Fort Stewart. Earlier this week she split her pants. Unfortunately,her car was at the shop for repairs so she had no choice but to walk to the Post Exchange (PX) to purchase a pair of pants as the last option. She was turned away and told she could not shop at the PX/denied service. That's horrible! I don't think that policy is fair. Civilians employed by the Department of Defense/DOD/ARMY and "Honorable Discharged"from the military should be able to shop at the PX.

I did some research and found that some installations allow DOD/Army civilians to shop at the PX. However, they can't purchase alcohol or tobacco products-that's understandable.

Does anyone know why Fort Stewart doesn't allow civilian employees to shop at the PX?

civilians have never supposed to been allowed to shop in the PX. they are suppose to scan a military ID card before checking out. some even check for the ID before even letting you in the doors of the PX. it is a privilege for only active duty and retired military. it is earned though military service. and being in the army for 10 years is not retired.

Well during that 10 years she lost her quality of life; she is rated as 70% disabled according to the Veterans Administration. She lost a large quality of life on the battle field...so she should be able to at least purchase a pair of pants. My heart goes out to veterans like her.

If your friend is 70% disabled according to the Veterans Administration that means she has a medical retirement and in that case she can shop at the PX and Commissary if she shows her ID card.

I looked into it and you have to be 100percent to get an ID CARD/retirement.

being rated 70% from the VA and being rated 70% from the military are two separate things. most civilians wont understand it. if the va rated her that. it was done after she got out of the military. in order to be considered medically retired you have to be put out of the military due to medical causes. and the military will give a rating before leaving the service. if it was lower then the amount to be considered retired she knew it and signed the papers all by herself knowing what she would and wouldn't get.

You know better, and sounds like somebody is jealous, and a cry-baby. You already know that military benefits such as shopping in the post exchange, commissary, healthcare, etc are reserved for active duty military, and those having served an entire career, 20 years plus, and retired from military service. Those serving only a few years, and or civilians with no military service are not supposed to have these benefits. Get over it!
