For those veterans that don't have a VA health benefits card, there is a Veteran Identification Card (VIC) available that can be used in place of carrying a copy of your DD-214 with you as proof of your status.

I am a veteran plus I have a Military Retired ID Card. Several years ago we got our Senior Access cards for $10.00. We were told while checking in to Salt Springs in Florida that they were going up but I didn't realize that they would go up that much. My wife got hers at the National Forest HQ near Lynne, Florida for $10.00. We have used them at the Grand Canyon, Sequoia National Park and others. We use it a lot at the Army Corps Campgrounds. I guess we are fortunate to have gotten ours when we did. I guess we are double covered now.

... how the heck do I get on a base. I don't have any VA card at all. I would love to use a base campground sometime.

Base access for Exchange, Commissary and MWR campgrounds isn't authorized for all veterans. It was only available to veterans with the MoH or 100% service connected disabled.

The new change in January, also extended in person Exchange, Commissary and MWR facility access to a new group. That group is limited to Purple Heart recipients, former POWs, Veterans with a VA rated service connected disability and VA recognized PCAFC caregivers. If you're in one of those new groups, you can now have access to use those service in person.

One quick note that this is for the Veteran and does not extend the same privilege to the Veteran's family unless that person is a VA designated caregiver. Lots of Veterans have been surprised when attempting to access the base with family members. It's a bit more flexible for camping as bases usually issue a Visitor's Pass to family members for MWR purposes when the Veteran has a campsite reservation.
