This does not automatically mean a vet is qualified, but now the door is at least cracked a bit.

If you don't want a man unhappy politically, don't give him two sides to a question to worry him; give him one. Better yet, give him none. Let him forget there is such a thing as war. If the Government is inefficient, top-heavy, and tax-mad, better it is all those than that people worry over it. Peace, Montag.

It wasn't Tr**p who refused GCS/GRS to Vets - it was the TERFS who lobbied the VA to write the Title 38 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) section 17.38 VA Directive - Medical benefits package.

This change to the VA's position would never have happened if Tr**p had been re-elected, but we have Biden now, and that is more than a world of difference.

The specific language was:
(3) Restoring health. Care is deemed to restore health if the care will restore the quality of life or daily functional level that has been lost due to illness or injury.
...
(c) In addition to the care specifically excluded from the “medical benefits package” under paragraphs (a) and (b) of this section, the “medical benefits package” does not include the following:

(4) Gender alterations.

Yeah, it's the usual drivel. They can't believe I'm female.

I'm willing to ponder if they are as well.
