VEVRAA defines these classifications as follows:

  • A “disabled veteran” is one of the following:
    • A veteran of the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service who is entitled to compensation under laws administered by the Secretary of Veterans Affairs; or
    • A person who was discharged or released from active duty because of a service-connected disability.
  • A “recently separated veteran” means any veteran during the three year period beginning on the date of such veteran’s discharge or release from active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval, or air service.
  • An “active duty wartime or campaign badge veteran” means a veteran who served on active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval, or air service either (a) during a war; or (b) in a campaign or expedition for which a campaign badge was authorized by the Department of Defense.
  • An “Armed forces service medal veteran” means a veteran who while serving on active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service, participated in a U.S. military operation for which an Armed Forces service medal was awarded pursuant to Executive Order 12985.

If you are a disabled veteran it would assist us if you tell us whether there are accommodations we could make that would enable you to perform the essential functions of the job, including special equipment, changes in the physical layout of the job, changes in the way the job is customarily performed, provision of personal assistance services or other accommodations. This information will assist us in making reasonable accommodations for your disability.
Submission of this information is voluntary and refusal to provide it will not subject you to any adverse treatment. The information provided will be used only in ways that are not inconsistent with the Vietnam Veterans’ Readjustment Assistance Act of 1974, as amended.

The information you submit will be kept confidential, except that (i) supervisors and managers may be informed regarding restrictions on the work or duties of disabled veterans, and regarding necessary accommodations; (ii) first aid and safety personnel may be informed, when and to the extent appropriate, if you have a condition that might require emergency treatment; and (iii) Government officials engaged in enforcing laws administered by the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs, or enforcing the Americans with Disabilities Act, may be informed.
