Okay guys and gals....
Simple yet confusing (for me) question. I am thinking of applying for some jobs on USAJOBS in the future. They ask about Veterans and your service. I've read VEOA and I believe I'm eligible. Now on the Veterans Preference side. There's 0, 5 and 10 points. As of now, I don't qualify for 10 point as I haven't done disability through the VA. The 5 point is what I'm confused about. It says
"In a campaign or expedition for which a campaign medal has been authorized. Any Armed Forces Expeditionary medal or campaign badge, including Afghanistan (Operations Enduring Freedom (OEF), Iraqi Freedom (OIF)), Bosnia (Operations Joint Endeavor, Joint Guard, and Joint Forge), Global War on Terrorism, Persian Gulf, and others may qualify for preference."
I assume I do not fall under this? Active duty from 2015 until present. Only reason why I ask is that the GWOT is still going on and it's listed above. Maybe I'm missing something or just overlooking.... anyone clear this up? Thank you!
Edit: so reading the GWOT ribbon under CG here...
I haven't been in during those dates nor supported a unit that was involved in GWOT.
