I am an 1980s era Army veteran. I was Honorably Discharged

I am an 1980s era Army veteran. I was Honorably Discharged under Chapter 13 with 15 months of Active Duty in the Regular Army. After six months in the Individual Ready Reserve, I transferred to the Active Reserve and I served the remainder of my 4 year enlistment, and a two year Reserve commitment, plus a one year extension. I re-enlisted as an Active Reservist and drilled for another two years and had to transfer back into the IRR due to hardship. I received an Honorable Discharge at the end of my second enlistment term. I have about 5 years of good reserve time, plus that on Active Duty in the Regular Army. Do I qualify for a Certificate of Eligibility for V.A. benefits to purchase a home?
