The Armed Forces, both active and retired, are historically given more respect and unsolicited bonuses in the United States than in this country. It is most unlikely to happen in this country that discounts would be offered on the basis that one once served or are currently serving in the military or the police and almost certainly American companies have never even thought of widening the offer to other countries for obvious reasons. ...

Carnival was suggested as one company who offered both active and retired military perosnnel discounts, but they are American but own Cunard which was British !!
