Starting this week, Veterans can use the VA’s online My HealtheVet portal (www.myhealth.va.gov) to view official details about their military service from deployment data to Military Occupational Specialty (MOS) codes which define the type of work performed and skills learned during their tour of duty. Veterans can electronically download that information to their personal computers.
Military job information available to Veterans under this program will depend on their discharge or retirement date.
- All Veterans discharged after 1980 will see military specialty or classification codes;
- Some Veterans discharged between1975-1980 will see military specialty or classification codes;
- Some Gulf War Veterans may see combat pay and deployment periods;
- All Post-9/11 Veterans will see combat pay and deployment periods
Veterans not signed up for My HealtheVet must register. That can be done at any VA medical center by completing a one-time identity-verification process.
