To be eligible for most VA benefits, the claimant must be a veteran. By statute, a "veteran" is defined as a "person who served in the active military, naval, or air service, and who was discharged or released under conditions other than dishonorable. Some members of the National Guard and reserve components have difficulty meeting the active duty and length of service requirements. However, a member of the National Guard or reserve components who is activated for federal military service and serves the full period of activation is considered a veteran for purposes of VA benefits.
