  • Prior Service w/disability rating

    Hello all,

    I am 24yrs old and served from 2012-2016 as an active duty Marine with an honorable separation as a SGT. I have a disability rating from the VA and my question is: "Does a prior service member with a disability rating still have a chance at a SEAL contract?"

    My research;

    I have read through all 'prior service' related posts on this thread as well as searched the internet. So far i have found that it is possible simply being prior service. I have found out, as long as you tell the VA prior to you going back on active duty, your VA disability status and veteran status will be put on hold. I would simply like some clarification to the specifics of having a current disability rating and still pursuing a SEAL contract. All knowledge on this matter is greatly appreciated. Thank you,
