Yes, so long as you served long enough and don't have a dishonorable discharge. Check with the VA and make sure they have your DD214 info all updated as well. The last few VA loans I have done the DD214 was not updated correctly and it took a little bit to get that corrected for the eligibility to move forward with the loan.

You are eligible to use your benefits now as long as you are currently employed by the United States Government. Start by visiting the following website to get your DD214 (I don't think anyone gave you this information): This is where you should start and then proceed to get in touch with a Trusted Mortgage Professional who can help get your pre-approved for your purchase. If your goal is to purchase a home, then you should get started now. I would be very happy to work with you or answer any direct questions you may have. I wish you the best of luck and Thank You for your Military Service!
