Yes, Vets have their own program, but many of them are also eligible foe SSD. In addition, there are quite a number of vets who fought in Vietnam, who now find themselves eligible for SSD due to recently diagnosed PTSD as well as the effects of Agent Orange. How do I know? I have two friends, one recently vdiagnosed with PTSD and the other diagnosed with Parkinson's due to exposure to Agent Orange.
