The Vetrification Process
Vetrified is the verification process that The Veteran Market uses in order to verify military service from the Veteran, military retiree, active-duty member, National Guardsmen, Reservist and eligible military spouses. Vetrified leverages open source information from organizations such as The American Legion, Department of Veterans Affairs, Dun and Bradstreet to minimize the burden of sending personal identifiable information to prove military service.
Who is considered a Veteran?
Title 38 of the Code of Federal Regulations defines a veteran as “a person who served in the active military, naval, or air service and who was discharged or released under conditions other than dishonorable.” This definition explains that any individual that completed a service for any branch of armed forces classifies as a veteran as long as they were not dishonorably discharged.
The Veteran Market offers several benefits:
• Start selling your products online as a Veteran or military spouse in less than 24 hours.
• Market yourself and your personalized store and story with your own social media (Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram) accounts.
Start the process by clicking here OPEN A SHOP or at the Open a Shop link at the bottom of the page.

We are working to accept other file formats but for security reasons we are only allowing PDF document uploads at this time. We accept the following verification methods:
- American Legion Member ID Number (Veteran Verification)

We understand the reluctance to share personal information which is why we offer a number of alternatives for verification. The images below are linked to some of the verification methods above that do not require sending us your DD214 or U.S. Military ID card.
We also accept your DD214 and Military ID card and we encourage you to redact any personal information. The only information we need to verify is your first and last name, military branch and ID card expiration (if applicable). If you have suggestions for alternative verification methods please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
