This is an update to a previous post.
Finally, you can start verifying your Veteran Status before Veteran's Day so that veterans can shop at AAFES or Navy Exchange on that day.
All Military Veterans can shop AAFES and/or Navy Exchange starting on Nov 11, 2017
Honorably discharged veterans may make online exchange purchases for
themselves and their dependents
I should add that online military exchange shopping privileges doesn't allow you to purchase uniform
items, alcohol, or tobacco products to all honorably discharged veterans of
the Military Services effective November 11, 2017.
The issuance that prescribes this policy is the Directive-Type Memorandum, DTM 17-003, Veterans Military Exchange Online Shopping Access Policy.
