Returning Service Members (OEF: Operation Enduring Freedom /OIF: Operation Iraqi Freedom /OND: Operation New Dawn) Your service has earned your access to enhanced VA health care benefits.

In order to take advantage of these benefits, OEF/OIF/OND Veterans need to enroll in VA's health care system. Don't delay, apply today!

OEF/OIF/OND  combat Veterans can receive cost free medical care for any condition related to your service in your theater of operation for five years after the date of your discharge or release.

 For this reason, combat Veterans are strongly encouraged to apply for enrollment within their enhanced eligibility period, even if no medical care is currently needed.

 Your 5-year enrollment period begins on your discharge or separation date from Active Duty military service, or in the case of multiple call-ups, your most recent discharge date.

Comprehensive VA health benefits including preventative care, mental health care, prescriptions, emergency and surgical care are available to all Veterans . For complete information and registration:
