I believe many of us will and should be offended that WOT is honoring only US forces.   The freedoms we share today were and are not solely won by the US.   Please rethink this strategy!

How about reading more of the thread - Domo's posts, specifically

 

Also, consider for a moment that your own government may be blocking the query process on verification of your service.

 

Protection of personal information, security concerns, foreign intrusion, general suspicion, etc.

And when are you guys planning on opening up the recognition program to other than US members?  I'm a vet of the Canadian military after 32 yrs and I've been playing this game for the last 9 yrs.  Do I not qualify?  Somehow?

Carb007, You will have to submit a ticket request to WGT. I do believe that nobody in here can amend any changes that are currently in discussion in this subject forum.

I've noticed that the overwhelming majority of the "why can't we have this" complaining comes from our Canadian cousins.

 

They read the first post, don't ever bother with anything else, and jump right to the complaint department.

 

When you're finished reading the thread, call Ottawa

The last thing I want or need is WOT kissing my bumm because I served and giving me a skin that anyone can see from two continents away! An yes I target those tanks ASAP and to be honest they're more than likely Poges who need to be thanked for their service... Either way I've had the honor to serve and fight along side with coalition forces to include Canadian, British, Australian, Dutch, New Zealand, Japanese and a few others not mentioned while serving in Iraq in 2007-08 and in Afghanistan 2010-2011. I've seen enough coffins draped with their national flags and they deserve to be honored as well wake up WOT and give them their fair dues as well!

1. It's POGs not Poges.

2. You were probably one as you went straight for that.

3. You never seen a coffin draped with a national flag down range unless you worked for Mortuary Affairs (again you're a POG).

4. This has nothing to do with WG not wanting to give thanks to other nations. This has to do with ID.me being a North American company. 

 

Nobody deserves anything. Just because we served in the military. 

So don't ask for discounts at stores, don't get a free sandwich on Veteran's Day.

 

Live life and be happy you're still alive.

Well, I thought I might have offered some sage advice here, but after running-through a couple of times myself, it seems the process has tightened-up a bit since the first time I verified - and I don't have the upload stuff right at-hand.

 

You might have to re-verify with a document up-load no matter what.

 

I see that several posters have recommended that a PM to The_Chieftain might be worth a try.

Well, I've been in the hospital for a month getting a new prosthetic leg, and tried all this again and still get the same thing. Oh well.

Seriously, send a message to The_Chieftain ... it may take a day or two, but I know he'll give you good steerage.

IF, WG really wants to show appreciation to the military and veterans alike for having signed a "blank check", should give us either A- a choice of vehicles or B- gold

I special vehicle for veterans would be cool. Recognizing non US vets would also be nice.

Tried again and I was successful this time around. What didn't work last time worked this time around. :facepalm:. Also saw that WG is recognizing our Canadian comrade in arms now.

Can the Canadian Military take part in this program...I will leave this question up ....but its more of a point to WOT....Ottawa will never verify military members for two reasons...Privacy Laws are very strict..and no private corp will have access and nor should they......I kind of hope that WOT will utilize my ID that I submitted .....good luck.

Is there something similar for Canadian Veterans and German Veterans who are living in North America?

I already have the Thunderbolt, shouldn't I have gotten the equivalent price in credits along with the 100% crew and Garage space. I got neither when I verified.
