FAFSA, Veteran Status
as a reservist, my NCOIC told me i was allowed to claim myself as a veteran on fafsa. i did so, and my school is asking for a member 4 copy of my dd214.
still being a current, drilling reservist would i even have a member 4 copy? i have a member 1 copy, and i submitted that, but my financial aid office is asking for a member four copy.
on of my buddies at my unit who is a 92 day reservist apparently did the same thing, but his office didnt ask for the member four copy.
is what i did illegal?

Not illegal, but you should have Member 4 copy, expecially if you have member 1 copy. Member 4 is the long form, that has RE code, Character of Service, and Reason for Seperation.

yeah, its weird. my VA office should just be able to tell them that i am receiving veteran benefits.
i have the member 1 copy, and thats the form i got after i go out from active duty training before i headed into the reserves. but i never got a member 4 copy

Have you looked for a copy in your SRB? It should be there. If it is, have admin make a copy, then have a commissioned officer certify it true. That should placate the financial aid people.
