Not Sure If You're A Vet?
"I did my time…… I served my 2 year enlistment during peacetime, am I entitled to benefits?" Am I considered a veteran?
What is a Veteran?
A veteran - whether active duty, retired, national guard or reserve - is someone who, at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to "The United States of America," for an amount of "up to and including my life." That is honor, and there are way too many people in this country who no longer understand it.
It is certainly true different veterans benefits apply for different circumstances. Disabled veterans receive monthly cash compensation. Retired (20 year) veterans, get a monthly pension check.
All veterans, with one day of active duty, are entitled to free cemetery space in any National Cemetery including their spouse! This includes graves, burial vaults, double marker, perpetual care and opening and closing.
If you have questions about your status as a veteran, and your specific benefits call us at (800) 467-7850.
