2. Did you serve on active duty (including basic training) whether in training or active assignment(s)?
Yes. | Go to question 3.

7. Many reservists and guardsmen did not complete 180 days of active federal service whether through training or federal activation, but served-out their obligations to their reserve units, and that makes you an eligible veteran for our services.

Yes. | If you are otherwise qualified above, then you qualify for our services.
