Service Officer’s Corner For March.

Understanding Priority Group 6 Eligibility for VietNam Veterans

Eligibility for enrolment in the V.A. health care system is determined by qualifying in one of eight priority groups. Priority group (PG) incorporates seven categories of veterans. The fourth category pertains to “Veteran who served in the Republic of Vietnam between January 9, 1962 & May 7, 1975.”

To clarify & elaborate on eligibility for PG 6 Southeast Asia Theater Veterans, we asked the following questions of VFW’s National Veterans Service, the Department familiar with VA rules and regulations.

The eight questions & answers are listed on page 10 in the March VFW magazine.

Call me for further answers at the number below.
