While technically true under federal law, this is never going to happen. The last times the VCA went into federal service, was during the War of 1812 when the unit was the first to volunteer in New York State, and during World War I, when the VCA raised and volunteered several hundred members into service. While a few of the members were sent overseas on behalf of the U.S. Army, most were pressed into State duty guarding the reservoirs and been available as the state required.

Any member of the VCA who has earned federal or state award, medals, devices, tabs, etc. can wear them on their VCA uniform as long as they are shown on their DD214. Priorities are established by the specific service in which such decorations were earned. Any member who was entitled to wear a beret (as shown on their DD214) is entitled to wear that headgear instead of the standard U.S. Army beret.
