Because my father did not get sent to Vietnam, but instead was discharged with a medical discharge in the middle of his third year of service, he was not eligible for VA benefits. For some bizarre reason, he was eligible for inpatient VA benefits once he had a stroke. Perhaps because he had enlisted? I have no idea why there was this discrepancy.
