The status of a veteran or eligible spouse for Priority of Service can be verified by referring to a variety of official documents including, but not limited to:
• A DD 214 (issued following separation from active duty);
• An official notice issued by the Department of Veterans Affairs that establishes entitlement to a disability rating or award of compensation to a qualified dependent;
• An official notice issued by the Department of Defense that documents the eligibility of an individual, based on the missing or detained status of that individual's active duty spouse;
• An official notice issued by a State veteran's service agency that documents veteran status or spousal rights, provided that the State veteran's service agency required Federal documentation of that information.
