  1. so its an exclusive military club that you have to pay for? isnt that just taking advantage of the fact that a fair amount of vets just want a quiet safe place to hangout with the brothers and sisters that understand them? i feel like you are taking advantage of that and trying to monetize it. just go to your local veterans resource center, American Legion Post, or Veterans of Foreign Wars Post. i dont know, maybe i am misunderstanding the point to this place
