Family members of combat veterans have been eligible for Vet Center readjustment counseling services for military related issues since 1979.
If you, or a family member, served in any combat zone and received a military campaign ribbon (Vietnam, Southwest Asia, OEF, OIF, etc.) than your family is eligible for Vet Center services.
