my husband was in the army, active duty for three yrs in LA. but it doesn't count! our taxes on our home are crazy... almost $7000 a yr.... so i called to see how to get the service member discount. they say there was no active war taking place so he doesn't qualify. they are saying he didn't have a chance of being killed and didn't service during war time. i think that is crazy. 1) when in the service you are supposed to be ready to fight at all times. 2) what about the dmz.... that has been going on forever does anyone know where i can get statisics of our soilders killed or injured during 1980-1983? i think anyone who served, would be offended, by being told that being active isn't good enough. not only for this but in general. you didn't go to war, so the heck with you.
