Veterans Benefits Factoid #1

babyBenefits for children of Vietnam veterans who are born with spina bifida (38 U.S.C., Chapter 18) are not dependent on the character of discharge.  That is, regardless of the characterization of the service of the veteran parent, individuals may receive Chapter 18 benefits if the necessary Vietnam service and relationship requirements are met.  For more information on eligibility and development for Chapter 18 benefits, see the United States Department of Veterans Affairs.
