Title 38 of the Code of Federal Regulations defines a Veteran as “a person who served in the active military, naval, or air service and who was discharged or released under conditions other than dishonorable.” This definition explains that any individual that completed a service for any branch of armed forces classifies as a Veteran as long as they were not dishonorably discharged. In addition, honorable service during time of peace or service not within a hostile environment (stateside) are still concerned acceptable in determining Veteran status.
Yes, Vetrified is the term that The Veteran Market uses in order to verify military service from the Veteran, military retiree, active-duty member, National Guardsmen, Reservist and eligible military spouses. Vetrified leverages open source information from organizations such as The American Legion, Department of Veterans Affairs, and Dun and Bradstreet to minimize the burden of sending personal identifiable information to prove military service. This is our term for the verification process.
A Veteran is either an active-duty member, military retiree, National Guardsmen or Reservist. They must be at least the 51% unconditional owner of the business and must control the management and daily operations of the business.
For additional assistance, please see Verification Application Instructions. The Center for Verification and Evaluation (CVE) also hosts webinars about the Verification Process. Check the CVE webinar schedule for upcoming trainings and virtual town hall meetings.
According to the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), Public Law 106-50, the Veterans Entrepreneurship and Small Business Development Act of 1999, states that there is no required minimum disability rating. This means a Veteran with a zero-percent disability rating letter is eligible to self-represent as a Service Disabled Veteran for federal contracting purposes. Please Note: The important factor is making sure that you have established a disability rating—not the degree of the disability.
Yes, if a firm has received an approval determination as a result of their application to the Center for Verification and Evaluation (CVE), they are legally allowed to use VA’s registration of the mark for properly representing their firm. The mark may only be used during the period designated in the determination letter provided by CVE.
For additional clarification on use of the CVE identification logo, please see the Use of the SDVOSB/VOSB Certification Trademark Fact Sheet at the CVE website.
