I've seen several Block 18s filled out that include "Service in Kuwait YYYYMMDD-YYYYMMDD". AR 635-8, para 5-6 just specifies deployment and not specifically "combat" deployment. My separations clerk says Kuwait deployments don't get delineated in Block 18. Anyone else run into this situation? Is it because OSS isn't a contingency operation? Any ideas on references for this? Thanks.

When I was there in 2015-2016 it was under OEF-SS. It is on block 18 of my DD214. There may be a difference between how it is associated with NG and RA, since for the RA Kuwait is a hardship duty location. That is the only thing I can think of for it not being on block 18 of your DD214.
