Frequently Asked Questions: A National Guard member received a DD214 after basic training then was reassigned to a guard unit. Does this individual qualify for the exemption?

Question

A National Guard member received a DD214 after basic training then was reassigned to a guard unit.  Does this individual qualify for the exemption? 

Answer

No.  National Guard units normally do not serve under the terms of Title 10 of the US Code.  In this scenario, the individual may have received the training from regular armed services.  However, this education/training is not considered full-time active duty.  Note, this exemption is directly designed to benefit those veteran's who honorably served on active duty in a combat situation and ultimately received an expeditionary or campaign medal for their service.
