    Is now available at http://www1.va.gov/opa/is1/index.htm the site features full info as to whom is qualified to recieve free benefts, from WW2 to the present.

    The past qualifiers include;
    Vets from date Dec 7, 1941 to Dec 31, 1946.
    Vets from June 27, 1950 to Jan 31, 1955.
    Vets from Aug 5, 1964 (including those in country from Feb 1961 until Aug 5, 1964, Viet Nam), until May 7, 1975.
    Vets from Aug 2, 1990 until a date not yet set by congress, for the Gulf Wars Era.

    The site is a government publication concerning all benefits available; this includes children of woman veterans, foreign nationals whom served in the armed services, immigration benefits for the previously mentioned, Merchant Marines whom served in WW2 and later. Civilians whom served in non combat roles via airline employment, coastal support groups, and many other services to our country.

    Burial benefits, head stones, benefits for survivors, spouses, children, wives, sisters and brothers, parents, ect.

    Types of cancer recgonized as to be from Agent Orange, spinal bifida in children of VN vets, male and female.

    And much too much to type here, this is what is right now available for you as a veteran.

    Of course there is more info conserning non combat veterans, but this lies out of my scope of exsperience; contact your local VFW or similiar organization for this info.
