    1. People NEED to weigh their need for security of their personal information against a little extra pocket change. Your military I.D. number IS your social security number and should NEVER be given out for frivolous reasons.
      Essentially, offers like this are a way for private companies to “purchase” your confidential personal information for “a few pieces of silver”.
      Lowes has a similar “military discount” program in which they require you to submit your DD214 after which they will sent you a military I.D. discount card. In essence they are buying your personal confidential information for pennies on the dollar under the false disguise of “giving” you a discount.
      Lowes even refuses to accept my driver’s license as proof I am a veteran when it states very plainly on the license “Military Veteran”. I had to submit my DD214 to the state to get it printed on my license.
      The more private companies that offer so-called discounts or rebates under the requirement that you breech your own personal security, the more likely you will find your personal information spread all over the web and into the hands of waiting criminals.
      If they can not accept a driver’s license or some other documentation that certifies you are a military person or veteran without giving out your personal information, THEN, “walk on by”, they are only trying to con you to get access to confidential information! Be careful what you wish for, you just might get it up the wrong end!
      Don’t get me wrong, I own several Smith & Wesson products, but, I have never stooped so low as to buy into their “discounts” in exchange for my personal information.
      From a disabled Vietnam Vet, Sargent, U.S. Army, 16 years military service, last duty station Admin NCO White Sands Missile Range. Security is our business!

      1. Every military discount program I’ve signed up for I’ve blacked out my social security number. It’s better been a problem.

        Also, DOD ID number is no longer your social security number.

    2. Will this program include the “New .380 EZ shield. Do we have to show proof of service (DD214)Thank You for all that you do…. Nam Vet

    3. Good afternoon,
      I am inquiring to find out if the Smith and Wesson M&P shield 9mm for the NYPD qualifies for this rebate if you are a veteran. Thank you
