Unfortunately, the commissary benefit is very similar to a lot of other military benefits, including exchange privileges. Only active-duty service members, Guard and reservists, medical retirees, retirees, Gold Star widows, 100 percent disabled veterans and all of their respective dependents are granted commissary access. However, there is one exception for veterans. For more details, see this Questions and Benefits column.
