Frequently Asked Questions: A veteran has a DD form 214, was a cadet at a service academy during the Vietnam War time period. Would the veteran qualify for the Veterans Exemption program?

Question

A veteran has a DD form 214, was a cadet at a service academy during the Vietnam War time period. Would the veteran qualify for the Veterans Exemption program? 

Answer

Not necessarily, time spent at one of the military academies (i.e. West Point, Annapolis, etc.) does not count toward the active duty service requirements needed to qualify for the Wyoming Veteran's Exemption program.  For the Wyoming Veteran’s Exemption program, the cadet’s active duty military service starts when they are commissioned upon graduation from the service academy.  The veterans DD Form 214 is the defining source in determining the veteran’s active duty service and discharge status.  Note, the veteran could still qualify for the Veterans Exemption, if they have a VA disability of 10 percent or higher or if they have received a campaign or expeditionary medal.
