The Kern County Veterans Service Department says all honorably discharged veterans can now shop online from their military exchanges.

The privilege was previously only offered to active duty military and retirees. This policy change became effective Veterans Day, according to the Kern County Veterans Service Department.

Veterans will need to provide information, such as name and Social Security number, to verify their service and gain access to the online stores.

Shopping privileges for veterans exclude uniforms, alcohol and tobacco products.
