I'm so glad I read this. I recently acquired a platinum as the benefits were worth it to me for the annual fee. I had no idea they would waive the fee because I'm active duty. I'm generally the very last person to ask for a military discount on anything, as I feel that I chose this line of work for my own reasons, not so that I can get as many freebies as possible. However, this is a benefit I will be applying for, as it's pretty hard to pass up.
