Frequently Asked Questions: Applicant is retired National Guard member with documented VA disability. The veteran does not have a DD Form 214 to show "military service" at the federal level and admitted that he/she was never called up to active duty.

Question

Applicant is retired National Guard member with documented VA disability.  The veteran does not have a DD Form 214 to show "military service" at the federal level and admitted that he/she was never called up to active duty. 

Answer

The veteran does qualify as a disabled veteran under W.S. 39-13-105(c)(vii).  But, does not qualify under the statute by not being "honorably discharged from military service", W.S. 39-13-105(d).  However, the veteran met the VA requirement of federal service in order to qualify for compensable disability.  The veteran must obtain and show documentation on how the VA arrived at the requirement for compensable disability.  This will require the veteran to contact their VA service center manager to obtain the necessary documents.
