Veteran awards are presented in five year increments (ie 5, 10, 15... etc.) to those individuals whom have maintained and active registration. Veteran Award applications are also due by Saturday, March 11th. But, it is strongly encouraged for those individuals applying for 25 years, or more, of service to turn in their application ASAP. Those applications need to be approved by the national office which may take several weeks, or months, or years. Yes, they are very very slow.
