Verizon Wireless is giving a 15 percent discount on monthly service and 25 percent off certain accessories to active service members and veterans.

Anyone with a military-issued email, paystub, DD Form 214, Veteran's ID card, military retiree account statement or VetRewards Card can sign up for the promotion. Verizon is also offering up to $120 in savings on high-speed internet packages.

The company said it has already found 100,000 accounts eligible to receive the discount automatically.

"We want to give active-duty service members and veterans one less thing think about when doing business with us," said David Small, executive vice president of wireless operations at Verizon. "Verizon highly values the men and women in the armed forces."

See Verizon's website for more on the deal. The company's networks cover most of the Chattahoochee Valley with 4G LTE coverage, though that coverage appears to get sketchy south of Fort Benning.
