Eligibility for most VA benefits is based upon discharge from active military service, retirement from the National Guard or Reserves under other than dishonorable conditions. In order to expedite benefits delivery, Veterans seeking a VA benefit for the first time must submit a copy of their service discharge form (DD-214, DD-215, or for World War II Veterans, a WD form).
