No

Thank you for your reply.
Unfortunately, the benefits available all are for veterans who have served some active duty time. So I am afraid that the small stipend for nursing care that they pay would only be available if you had some active duty time with an honorable discharge. If you were discharged for a disability prior to completing any active duty, that requirement may be waived by the VA, but otherwise only veterans with active duty qualify for benefits.
