Thank you for your service.
If you switched from self employed to w-2 you'll be fine as long as you don't need to count commissions, overtime or bonuses to qualify.
Are you in the same "field" or a similar line of work as when you were self employed?

Here is a link to what the requirements are to obtain a VA loan as well as information on employment qualifications:
Theses are the basic requirements:
-90 days or more active duty service during wartime
-181 days or more of active duty during peacetime
-You were not dishonorably discharged
-You are active duty and meet the above requirements
-You are the surviving spouse of a veteran who died during service or because of service-related injuries and you have not remarried
The VA prefers to see consecutive employment for at least two years and they will consider a lesser time frame if you can provide documentation and a good explanation for it.
