Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Department of Veterans Affairs Act. In a provision requiring a service officer to be assigned to each field office established by the Department of Veterans' Affairs, provides that he or she must be an honorably discharged veteran from service in the Armed Forces of the United States who has served at least 2 years of military service (rather than he must be an honorably discharged veteran from service in the Armed Forces of the United States; and he must have served during a time of hostilities with a foreign country). Removes the definition for "time of hostilities with a foreign country". Removes certain conditions concerning military service and discharge. Effective immediately.

House Committee Amendment No. 1
Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Reinserts the introduced bill with the following change: Defines "Armed Forces of the United States" to mean any of the armed forces of the United States, including any reserve component or Natural Guard Unit. Effective immediately.
