You don't need a long military career to be rewarded for your service. When you complete your commitment and are honorably discharged, your New Mexico National Guard service qualifies you for veteran's benefits at the state and federal level.
You will be recognized as a veteran, which is a special status that earns respect from military and civilian communities. Many organizations offer opportunities to veterans because of the skills, experience and leadership qualities you developed as a member of the New Mexico National Guard.
If you already are serving and are considering transferring to the National Guard, you might be closer to veteran status. Ask your recruiter about the benefits of being a veteran and how you might qualify.
Disability Retirement Benefits
If you retire and can also claim at least 10 percent service-related disability, you can receive health care, vocational training and even burial benefits from the Veterans Administration.
Speak with your recruiter about your eligibility for VA disability benefits.
