I served in the canadian military for  only 3 years. Are there any card besides the NDI 75, or CF 75  which require 10 years of service to get that i qualify for.  My situation is with marine atlantic whom has a promotion on where they are giving a discount for military personel, veterans, etc. They are requiring both of these cards, and the vac card of which i have neither. I only have my certificate of service with the date i joined and the date of honorable release. Is there anyone out there that can help me out. Thanks, 8141 chuck.

I'm in a similar boat. As I understand the definition of veteran including any member who completed MOC training, I believe I qualify having served for a year following 3 years training and then on Supplementary Reserve for another 8 years or so.  However, NDI 75 is for 10 years of service, not including Supplementary. Were you able to find another form of card, 8141 chuck?

In addition to that.. I was wondering if anyone knew if members with less than 10 years service who are 3a, or 3b medical released - are they issued any sort of photo id  - in comparison to the CF 75? I was told in passing once that it was possible to be issued a CF 75 with less than 10 years service if you are  released under 3a, or 3b medical release, and were Reg F.

I have looked every where to support that information, but have had no luck. If anyone knows the answer please let me know!

Yours too snowball:

ELIGIBILITY

5.     Effective 31 January 2000, forms CF 54 and CF 75 shall be issued
to a member who has completed 10 or more years service in any component
of the Canadian Forces (CF) or who, at the time of release, was entitled
to an immediate annuity.  The only exception is that these documents will
not be issued to members released under item 1 (misconduct) or 2
(unsatisfactory service).

I just spoke with  DMCARM-4
They informed me that you CAN use your certificate
of service as proof of your Military employment. It is
8x10 so carrying it around in your pocket wouldn't be advised.
You can request additional copies from DMCARM-4 in Ottawa.
1-866-240-6726.

I feel that any former member of the CAF who
received an honorable or medical discharge should in fact be entitled
to a NDI 75. Times have changed and the reasons for it initial use
are obsolete. Mr MacKay it's time you brought in legislation to reflect
the needs of today's solider as well as the others who have given service
of less than 10 years. Some of these veterans of WW1 WW2 Korea and other
battles. Many only had a few years service and they too are being exempted from the NDI 75 .

We deserve to be recognized for our service regardless of length !!

No one, alive today and that is without a card is a WW1 veteran.

If you need a CF 75 to make you feel good about your service, you have much bigger issues. Lets start giving out the CD on BMQ graduation then, i'm sure people who leave the forces after a year deserve recognition too.

Apparently for ex service members, I am told one can obtain a "record of service" card that can be used for discounts etc. Does anyone have more information on this? Cheers and thanks!

See here for the application.  You need to have more than 10 years service I believe.

So I had to renew my license, and while there I asked about Veteran's plates. The woman at the counter gave me an application form, and told me I would need to bring in my Veteran ID card. I told her I had never gotten one, and she said it was necessary. I called my case manager VAC and asked her and she said no such thing existed to her knowledge. The woman at Service Ontario was very insistent that there is a Veteran ID card with a picture, etc on it to prove I am a Vet and that she had seen one every time people came in. Anyone know what this is, or how I go about getting one?

She means the NDI 75 Record of Service card.  You only get one if you've served more than 10 years.  You don't need it for a veteran's plate.

All that's required to get a veteran's plate (in Ontario) is to follow the instructions at http://www.mto.gov.on.ca/english/dandv/vehicle/plates.shtml, and submit the form found on that page.  The form has to be sent over to the Legion first so they can get their $5 cut to verify you're a veteran.

They should have one ID that fits everyone.  Right now, if you have less then 10 years, all you get is a VAC Card, only if you have an injury and the 1 Card. Problem is they are not ID Cards, they only act as proof of service and in many cases, like for Shades of Green in Orlando, these cards, not even the ND 75 are not good enough and this comes from them.

I am not sure what you are getting at.   Are you trying to say that there should only be one card, like this

They are not good enough for them because:

"Military personnel of foreign nations and their family members when assigned or attached to a U.S. military unit or installation or on U.S. Travel Orders.

So it doesn't matter what card you have, you don't meet the above criteria and you don't get in. Their playground, their rules.

Apparently you can get discounted tickets from the shades of green hotel. Proof that you are a veteran is needed.

Petro Canada is offering 3c per litre off of up to 200L per month if you have a CF-1 card.

https://retail.petro-canada.ca/en/independent/5741.aspx

This card has been meaningless to me since it started.
With no ND20 or 75, what have I had to prove my service or eligibility?

Nope it doesn't, I just registered.   Just wants service number and date of enrollment.  :). In about 5minutes after the CFOne registration it emailed me a confirmation which included a card number in the email.  (So you can register for the petrocan card right after)


 In 10 days I will have myself a fuel card!

However, if you are a veteran, they want a copy of your NDI 75 included with the application.

And a promise on the campaign trail to replace the NDI 75:

http://www.conservative.ca/harper-conservatives-to-issue-new-canadian-veterans-card-to-all-military-veterans-2/


Looks like the prelude to opening/reopenning up Veterans Affairs Offices and employing more at Veterans Affairs to deal with the management, photographing of Veterans and issuing of these cards. 

Quote
As with other forms of official identification, the CVC card will be renewed and updated every 10 years. There will be no cost to the Veteran for renewing the CVC. The renewal will also provide VAC with the opportunity to renew contact with the Veteran and ensure that he/she is receiving all the benefits and services which may be required.

The back of the NDI75, centered on the bottom, clearly states in both languages:
"This is not an identification card"

1.  I think it's convenient to refer to the card as a form of official identification
contrary to what the actual card states.

2.  Currently, the NDI75 does not have a date issued or expiry date. Considering the trouble veterans are encountering
to receive their initial issue of the card, now someone wants to reel them in every 10 years? No, I don't think that idea will float very well. Those that already have veterans ID will continue to use what they have, defeating the reasoning behind an expiry date.
