Veteran, other eligible

A person with active duty service at any point between December 7, 1941 and April 28, 1952; or a veteran who served in a campaign or on an expedition for which a campaign badge, a service medal, or an expeditionary medal has been awarded. The campaigns or expeditions that meet this criterion as of August 31, 1999 can be identified via the Internet at http://www.opm.gov/veterans/html/vgmedal2.htm. A veteran qualifies under this criterion only based upon military service in the identified campaign or expedition and not simply based on any military service during the time of the campaign or expedition. The campaign badges, service medals, and expeditionary medals that qualify under this criterion will be listed on Form DD-214, "Certificate of Discharge or Separation from Active Duty," or other official documents issued by a branch of service, if the veteran meets this criterion.

 

 

Veteran, special disabled

A person who is entitled to compensation under laws administered by the Veterans Administration for a disability rated at 30 percent or more; or rated at 10 or 20 percent in the case of a veteran who has been determined under 1506 of Title 38, U.S. Code, to have a significant employment handicap; or a person who was discharged or released from active duty because of a service-connected disability. The term significant employment handicap means a significant impairment of a veteran's ability to prepare for, obtain, or retain employment consistent with such veteran's abilities, aptitudes, and interests.

 

 

Veteran, Vietnam Era

A person who served more than 180 days of active military, naval, or air service, any part of which was during the period from August 5, 1964, through May 7, 1975, and who was discharged or released with other than a dishonorable discharge, or was discharged or released from active duty because of a service-connected disability.
