I must make one correction Home Depot does not give A Military discount on anything over $300.00 and if there is a sale they might not even give it to you. Depends on the store. Lowe’s give Military discount all the time .

We attended the graduation of our grandson from basic training recently and he received 3 free passes to Sea World in San Antoni0, TX. Such a nice surprise for us even though the temp that particular day was 99 and the heat index was 110 degrees. Thanks for providing our entertainment for one day in S. Antonio.
We also have a Sam’s card and they give us a $15. gift card when we renew each year. Thanks Sam’s.
Lowes is the BEST!!
