    I am new to this organization, but I totally agree with you on waiving fees for vets. I served my time in the Air Force and I also worked for the Federal Bureau of Prisons until I was medically forced to retire, yet I get no benefits from either of them.

    When I applied for my local CCW permit, I had to indicate my veteran status but received no waived fees, and in another state I have CCW in, they required my DDForm 214.
    I read the post regarding free drivers licenses for vets, I'll have to check into that as I just moved to a new state.
    Thanks to all that served and are still serving, hope you're doing well.

    If anyone has their fees waived because they are a particular class of person, everyone should get their fees waived.

    Period.

    Sorry, just the "radical" libertarian in me...
    Then by this measure no Police Officer, or retired Police Officer, should enjoy special consideration with respect to carrying a weapon, concealed or otherwise, neh? And just how do you recommend we present this disparity of fairness under the 14th Amendment?

    In Texas, Active Duty Military do NOT have to pay for CHL license, and if your instructor is pro-military or just plain likes you, they won't charge you much (if any) for the Course. I chose to pay for my Photos instead of asking him to foot the bill for that too. Reserve Military, only pay 50% of the rate of the license. That is what all states ought to do! IMHO

    I agree with most everyone. I think us active duty members and our reservist brethern should get reduced or free permits. Most of us have had plenty of weapons training, CQC, etc. I am all for it! Speaking of which....i need to renew mine, it expires next year.

    People only fear what they do not understand, instead of fearing things, learn about them.

    Has any military member (active or reserve) ever gotten past the "requirements" by your sheriff (in NC) for CCW/CHL? I really would like to know. I am moving back to NC (military move) and will have my TX CHL, but considering getting one from NC, if there is not too much hassle.

    Anyone? NC?

    If my memory is not to messed up the DDForm 214 is your discharge paper work correct? You were most likely asked for this because if you were dishonorably discharged then in most (not sure if its all) that will disqualify you for a carry permit. As for waiving the fees I feel all Active, gaurd, reserve and retired should be treated equally and not pay the fees or even be required to have a permit, (in GA your active ID acts as a carry permit), if you have done your time honorably. I have seen it too many times, me (active air force) and my father in law (retired army) go somwhere and I get a discount or reconized for my service but not him. I continually remind men and woman who thank me that they should be thanking the retired for if it were not for the wars they fought I would not have received the privilage to serve for the SAME country they did. I take great honor in serving my country and can only hope that one day ALL that live here will have as much gratitude for the retired and fallen heroes as I do.

    In SC disabled vets and retired police officers don't have to pay the $50 fee. In order to prove that you are a disabled vet you need a copy of your DD214.

The regular fees however in my opinion for the above mentioned should be the same as law enforcements.
    Agree? Disagree? What do you think?
    i for one think that vet's should be afforded the same as l.e.o's as most have faced as much and more.
