    Are cadets entitled to military discounts? We are switching our mobile plan to verison and the sales guy said that daughter can get a 15% discount.

    Thanks for the help.

    Yes, you are legally recognized as being active duty.

    Are appointees considered active duty? It seems like that would not happen until they take the oath on R-Day and become new cadets.......or does it start when they accept their appointment?

    Not until you sign the dotted line on R-Day.

    So, are cadets given some sort of military ID to show for the military discount?

    You will have an official military ID.

    Do cadets take the photos for their ID during Beast? I know Mids take them during Plebe Summer and they looked like mugshots.

    Thank you. I assume cadets reporting this June are given the ID at that time.

    Our military ID photos were taken during basic training at ft. Jackson during inprocessing...I would assume its the same way at west point. And yes they did look like mugshots!!

    Does the military discount also apply for ROTC candidates who make a commitment?

    You would have to ask the individual retailers. All of them have various policies, but normally it's for those on active duty, but some include Reserves as well.
