Answer . 180 days of Active Service and an Honorable Discharge. Answer . My father was in the navy and it didn't have anything to do with how long he served. He is co…nsidered a veteran and it often refers to retired armed services personnel. A veteran is one who has served in the armed forces and has an honorable discharge. A common misconception is that one had to have either been in combat and/or has retired from active duty to be called a veteran.
No. H.R. 1025 passed the House in 2012 but has not yet passed the Senate. Currently, you are only considered a veteran if you served on a Title 10 tour of duty. 99% of all Nat…ional Guard active duty is served on Title 32. H.R. 1025 won't cost the government a penny, but until it becomes law, service in the National Guard does not make a person a veteran.
If you served in the Coast Guard, then yeah you are a veteran. The Coast Guard is a branch of the military, so people in the Coast Guard are soldiers.
Approximately 2,555 US Sailors and 7 US Coast Guardsmen were killed in the Vietnam War.
The basic requirement is that you have served in the armed forces. Most countries do have some additional restrictions. In the US, you must have been discharged either on a …General or Honorable Discharge to qualify as a veteran.
No because you aren't serving your nation.Wrong, Haven't you read the Coast Guard mission?
The Coast Guard uses the same rank structure as the Navy. Thus, anyone who wears the rank of Ensign, Lieutenant JG, Lieutenant, Lieutenant Commander, Commander, Captain, or an…y Admiral rank, in considered a commissioned officer of the Coast Guard, and is also recognised by the rest of the Armed Forces as a commissioned officer, as well.
The normal questions from the VA during those years was usually, "how many days active duty, discounting active duty FOR TRAINING...?" However, times have changed, contact the…m again and see if government policies have been re-adjusted. After all, the Guard has been used heavily for over-seas deployments these past few years, see what benefits exist from the government today.
yes if the member was deployed for over 180 days of active service. It is my understanding that they do not count active duty for training. I was in the Guard, and remem…ber doing the same thing in basic as US and RA members did there and in AIT. Does their training time count toward the 180 days to be considered a veteran?
Not always. See your local VA representative.
In US Army
This is quite a debatable question. You are a veteran of the NG, but do you qualify for certain VA benefits? The VA will always have a different answer and can explain to you …what you actually qualify for.
In US National Guard
You are a veteran of the National Guard.
In US Coast Guard
The coast guard is a branch of the military. Most small boat operations in armed conflicts are driven by a coastie . Most of the landing craft driven onto the beaches of norma…ndy where skippered by the coast guard. They are armed and even go on special ops missions with teams like the seals. They also board drug running boats and shot 50cal machine guns . A far cry from lifeguards
In US National Guard
Not exactly. Most firms and agencies look for active duty service with a DD-214 honorable discharge. National Guard is part time service that provides a NGB-22 upon discharge.…
