    Does Reserve service after Active service qualify? Tom served 4/1/61 to 1/10/64 reserves to 3/31/67. In nursing home. Apply for benefits?

    Did the veteran serve in the Republic of Vietnam in that time span of 4/1/61 to 1/10/64 by chance? Here is the period of wartime as set forth by Congress that the veteran had to have served around that time:

    • Vietnam Era: August 5, 1964, through May 7, 1975.90 However, February 28, 1961, through May 7, 1975, for a veteran who served in the Republic of Vietnam during that period.

    No not in Vietnam. So I gather reserve service doesn't count?

    You need to determine if while the veteran was in Reserves if he was ever called up to "action" during an approved period of war. If not, then the time will not count. Unfortunately.
