Seems it is your commitment date, or dates for your contract, start and ending. If you need to know, contact a state N.G. recruiter and confirm.

@blahsaysme2u If you were submitting something using the online web forms, then that would make sense. It may have detected those fields were not populated in the system and prompted you. It's probabl

Unless you are in the Reserves or National Guard, this does not apply to you.  

For Reserves or National Guard, there is a minimum period of service to be eligbile for benefits which is different from Active Duty Veterans.  

In a nutshell, Reserves or National Guard "training" does not count toward military service for the purpose of benefits.  

If you want to know more about the reserve eligibility, read this:

This is weird the VA has this showing in his ebenefits  or a letter they sent?

I know after I got out I was reserved for an additional 3 years before they sent my Honorable Discharge Certificate.

I think all veterans have this status.  that went in served their time and  then ETS  they are placed in the Military Reserves according to the Branch they served = US Army ,USMC, US NAVY, US AIR FORCE  for an additional 3 years before receiving his/her Honorable Discharge Certificate.

Buck, if I recall correctly, we had 2 choices in the early 1970's:

1.  We could serve 4 years OR

2.  We could serve 2 years AND 4 more years in reserve or National Guard.  

   So, I did not serve in the reserve or national guard.  Now, they sent me letters to recruit me for years, but I knew that Reserve was not mandantory for me.  It was only mandantory if you served "only" 2 years.   I served 4 years and was done.  

   I seem to recall the military called it, "EAOS".  That is, the date of the "End of your Active Obligated Service".  

   As I may have mentioned, in the 70's, military service was "an obligation".  

Younger people where the military is all volunteer may not get that.

Bronc my situation was similar. Drafted in 1969 and released from Vietnam 2 years later. The regulation at that time was you could go to inactive reserves if you served in 'Nam, which I did. No additional requirement.So,for 4 years no meetings, no notices, nothing. (thank you Uncle Sam!), Got my discharge 4 years later.

    • Finally heard back that I received my 100% Overall rating and a 100% PTSD rating Following my long appeal process!

      My question is this, given the fact that my appeal was on the advanced docket and is an “Expedited” appeal, what happens now and how long(ish) is the process from here on out with retro and so forth? I’ve read a million things but nothing with an expedited appeal status.

      Anyone deal with this situation before? My jump is from 50 to 100 over the course of 2 years if that helps some. I only am asking because as happy as I am, I would be much happier to pay some of these bills off!

    • I told reviewer that I had a bad C&P, and that all I wanted was a fair shake, and she even said, that was what she was all ready viewed for herself. The first C&P don't even  reflect my Treatment in the VA PTSD clinic. In my new C&P I was only asked about symptoms, seeing shit, rituals, nightmares, paying bills and about childhood, but didn't ask about details of it. Just about twenty question, and  nothing about stressor,

    • I don’t say thank you enough to all of you...
      You, yes you, are the reason HadIt.com has remained a resource-rich resource. Thousands come each month to read, ask questions, or to feel a sense of community.

      Last month June 2020, we over 50k visitors they viewed over 160k pages. Veterans and their advocates, spouses, children, and friends of veterans come looking for answers. Because we have posts dating back 15 years and articles on the home page, they usually can find an answer or at least get pointed in the right direction.

      You all made that possible. Thank you.
