- How do I know if I’m eligible to join?
- You must be related to a Veteran who has served in overseas combat, earning the campaign medals that make them eligible. That Veteran can be a grandparent, parent, spouse, deceased spouse, child, sibling or grandchild.
- How can I prove my Veteran is eligible?
- The most common document is a DD214, which will list the Veteran’s dates of service and campaign medals. But you can also use other separation documents, such as documents showing service in Korea, Hostile Fire or Imminent Danger Pay on pay records and also sometimes other documentation if you don’t have one of these.
- Does my Veteran have to be retired from the military?
- No, your Veteran is eligible the moment he/she earns the accepted campaign medals for overseas service.
