Looking to see if all airport parking areas are still offering this to Military DV vehicles with plates. Has anyone flown recently that can give an update on current protocol? I did call USO and they have limited parking which is mostly for the volunteers that work there. Thanks in advance
Hi, I'm actually wondering the same thing before I drive into Houston early on Saturday. Did anyone answer this question, do disabled veterans with DV plates park free at IAH? I know they do at Hobby, DFW and Lovefield for sure.
Why do disabled vets get free parking but retired vets do Not? Anyone can join the military and get a disability rating after one month but if you stay in and retire you have to rate over 50% to get a rating.
The standard is the same for everyone. To get Texas State DV plates, all veterans must apply & provide proof of 50% disability rating (or at least 40% w/amputation). See application VTR-214.pdf on Texas DMV website txdmv.gov/forms.
We didn't join for free parking. I'll take my monthly income and health benefits as good enough. I don't remember my grandparents ever walking into a store and asking for their military discount.

I agree with USMC8511; I didn’t serve to look for handouts or discounts after the fact. Complaining about something like this is so petty. Also, if you didn’t manage to hit 50% after 20 years you must’ve worked behind a desk. SF.
I hear you Gunny but there is a little more required. Apparently you need to be >50% gimpy and qualify for a special designation on your license plate to get free parking at the Houston Airport. Is it right? Not in my humble opinion. BOHICA
