More on VA Benefits Qualification | Rosemont Elder Law Attorney

If you remember correctly, in order to be considered a “wartime” veteran, you or your loved one must have been discharged under conditions other than dishonorable and must have served 90 consecutive days of active duty. The 90 days must include at least one day in one of the following date ranges:

  • World War II: December 7, 1941 to December 31, 1946
  • Korean War: June 27, 1950 to January 31, 1955
  • Vietnam War: August 5, 1964 to May 7, 1975
  • Persian Gulf War: August 2, 1990 to (date not yet determined)
In order for you or your loved one to prove that you qualify, you must have you and your loved one’s discharge papers. If you are unsure about any of these things, don’t hesitate to call my office or a Veteran’s Service Organization.
