of a service-connected disability.

beginning on the date of such veteran’s discharge or release from active duty
in the U.S. military, ground, naval, or air service.
- An "active duty wartime or campaign badge veteran" means a veteran who
served on active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service during a
war, or in a campaign or expedition for which a campaign badge has been

on active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service, participated in

qualified people with disabilities.i
To help us measure how well we are doing, we are asking you to tell us if you
have a disability or if you ever had a disability. Completing this form is voluntary, but we hope that you will
choose to fill it out. If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used
against you in any way.

become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five
years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment
because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.
