Ets Date Question

Question

My Korean Vet buddy I'm trying to help, I have a strange question in my mind.

He enlisted on 18 Aug 1961, for 3 years

RAD : 4 Aug 1964 --SPN Code 411, Early Release, Overseas Returnee

DD214 -- #11 a. TRFD To USAR Termination Date of Obligation 17 Aug 1967

He tells me VA says he missed Vietnam Era also by 1 day, 5 Aug 1964.

My crazy Question:

On DD 214, states, # 24 b. Total Active Service 2 years, 11 months, 17 days.

# 32 Remarks - Lump Sum Payment made for 14 days accrued leave.

Question : This 14 days accrued leave the Army paid him for added to his Total active service time equals to the day exactly his 3 year enlistment.

If those 14 days are counted he would have more than the 1 day he needs to be considered Vietnam Era.

I know I'm a bit touched in the head -- but does my thinking make sense to anyone else ? Could this work in his favor ?

Thanks so much,

carlie

Hi,

From my experience in the army and army reserve, while on terminal leave you are still offically in the service and can be called back. I have 3 - DD214's and my terminal leave was counted in my 214.

I would think that it would. But who knows how the VA thinks
