Lowe's Military and Veteran Discount Available

Despite much debate, complaint, and argument, Lowe's continues to offer two different discount policies for various military folks. Unfortunately, there is a lot of confusion about the discount policies, amongst both the military and veteran population and also amongst the Lowe's staff.

Since most of the Lowe's staff has never served in the military, it is easy to understand how their own policies can be confusing to them. Please be kind and don't be rude to the staff. Honestly, from some of the comments I've seen here, I'm surprised they haven't cancelled the discounts altogether. Let's not have that happen because of confusion and frustration.

The official Lowe's policy, as listed on their website today, explains two different discounts: military and veteran. The way that Lowe's defines military and veteran is the key to understand which discount you might be eligible to receive. I have copied the section below from the Lowe's website, with some formatting changes to make it easier to read and understand.
