Frequently Asked Questions: Can a Merchant Marine qualify for the veteran’s exemption?

Question

Can a Merchant Marine qualify for the veteran’s exemption? 

Answer

It is possible under certain conditions.  There are those cases where individuals who served as a merchant marine during World War II have received veteran status at the federal level.  If merchant marines served during the statutory dates and received a discharge document for their service, they may qualify for Wyoming Veteran Exemption.  If the individual does not have a DD Form 214, they can file for one.  The information can be found on the web at http://usmm.org/index.html.
