I personally know a lot of people who have ordered from that site and saved a good bit of money, but one thing that is required for you to order from them is a photocopy of your military ID card. I didn't know this until relatively recently, but it's illegal to make photocopies of it for uses outside of the government. I don't think anyone really cares/checks, but it's just a little FYI.

Don't try this link, the website will try to hijack your toolbar (and who knows what else), HAVE A GOOD SPYWARE PROGRAM
Prove it. Where is the substantiated evidence?

I use my work computer, I seriously doubt they are steeling anything.

Oakley has government contracts, so that's how they get around this law. Plus they only require you to photocopy the front portion that has your rank and picture, not the back which has your Social and date of birth.

Yes you can get it at a discount. I have ordered from them before in the past and no I didn't have to give them a photo of my i.d.. The gear you get there meets military requirements so there is no flashy or colored glasses or anything it's mostly black. Most military guys know all about it, at least the ones I know and work with.

I've ordered from usstandardissue before and haven't had any problems. I've bought 2 pairs of boots from them. Good stuff.

Bought from them for years with no problems. I do have to resend my ID yearly. If you log on and are not a member you can not see the prices.

Any US servicemember can logon to the AAFES website. It requires your name, date of birth and SSN; it verifies the data against the DOD database and then lets you in. From there any US servicemember can link out to purchase any uniform item, the furniture they sell on-base, electronics, footwear, all of those things.

This is not even close to correct. I never had to provide my SSN or date of birth.

Indeed, I also was prompted to provide my last 4. It doesn't seem to be able to find a match for whatever reason, and even asks for all 9 digits if it fails to find said match. I've been Active for over 8 years, yet they can't find me, makes no sense. Whatever, I'll just shop elsewhere.

US Standard Issue will also give you the discount if you work for certain civilian fed.gov agencies, as well as to veterans. You may get a rejection notice on your first try, but you just have to call them and let them know you're a veteran and they will most likely give you access.

Um, ya, what does aafes have do due with Oakley or their website?
You said that US servicemembers when logging onto the on-base exchange system did not have to supply their SSN to prove they are US servicemembers.

Which was presented as the normal method through which servicemembers get oakleys [if they want oakleys instead of gargoyles.]

When I was in combat gargoyles were more popular.
