The same as on the American servicemen, but on a smaller scale; as Australia's population is 200 million people less than Americas.

Served in reserve during Vietnam war considered a Vietnam era veteran?

It is my best recollection that weekend warriors(National Guard and Enlisted Reserve) are not considered Viet Nam Era veterans unless they served two years of active duty during the years 1961-1974? Some sites cite 1964 as the beginning of the era and others cite different ending dates. The exception to this is if they were discharged while serving active duty for medical reasons. Active duty personnel of any branch during this era are considered Viet Nam Era veterans despite not having served in Viet Nam. This includes those stationed in Europe, the USA, and other postings as long as they were active duty. This specifically excludes weekend drills and summer camps. Some National Guard and Reserve units WERE activated and do qualify for this recognition. As someone with a serial number beginning with RA (regular army) I find it dishonest for someone who did not do the time to even think of claiming this status.
