Some military veterans and their caregivers will soon have more access to a Mississippi Navy base.
A policy change at Naval Air Station Meridian that’s new for 2020 will mean that approved veterans can apply for authorization to shop at base commissaries and Navy Exchange stores, The Meridian Star reported.
They’ll also be able to take part in morale, welfare and recreation programs.
Base officials say eligible veterans include Purple Heart recipients, former prisoners of war, or veterans with a service-related disability.
