Uh no, the VA doesn't have a classification of 'vietnam era vet', He is a Vietnam Veteran, according to the VA rules.

He isnt a Vietnam vet as he didnt serve in vietnam,

Didn't you read what I posted? Let me help your memory loss:

According to the US Department of Labor, the Vietnam Era Veterans' Readjustment Assistance Act of 1974 (VEVRAA) states, "A Vietnam era veteran is a person who served on active duty anywhere in the world for a period of more than 180 days, any part of which occurred between August 5, 1964 and May 7, 1975, and was discharged or released with other than a dishonorable discharge. was discharged or released from active duty for a service connected disability if any part of such active duty was performed between August 5, 1964 and May 7, 1975.

Emphasis mine.
