Wow. A lot of you guys on here need to do your homework. If you served and are now discharged there is absolutely no reason you can't have a VA I'd card. There a reason upon discharge that you receive transition assistane programs and classes. They should have told you all of this. But just in case they didn't, please get over to the VA and see what benefits are available to you. Bring your DD-214 Good luck to all my fellow veterans, active and Not active
