If your active military service occurred:

  • From 1957 through 1967, we will add the extra credits to your record when you apply for Social Security benefits.
  • From 1968 through 2001, you do not need to do anything to receive these extra credits. The credits were automatically added to your record. 
  • After 2001, there are no special extra earnings credits for military service.

Twenty-two (22) Veterans are committing suicide per day as a result of PTSD, TBI, depression and other related injuries or diseases from their military service. I have experienced some of these symptoms as well so I decided to take action to help fellow Veterans. My organization is called "BeArded WARRIORs". I am not a psychologist or mental health professional. I am a vet who is taking action to help other vets. My primary goal is to build a support network to bring awareness and prevent Veteran suicides.

On the 22nd of each month, I host a get together at the Veterans Memorial in downtown Huntsville. Anyone can attend.

If you know of a fellow vet who is having difficulty, have him contact me, Ty Oswald at 256/661-0631. See the flyer posted above.
