Hello Cos40, yes because VA/CalVet home loans are not fico score based loans. We as a mortgage broker have a few banks that have no fico score requirements However, VA or CalVet do have credit profile guidelines. I am also a Veteran and love assisting Veterans.
Your scores can be raised within 3-4 days in most cases to qualify for programs, rates and terms as necessary. Your qualifications will be determined by your credit profile, debt to income ratios, fico scores, home price, loan program and how much you want to invest into the down payment and closing costs.
If you figure out what cities/zip codes you are considering, minimum number of bedrooms and the maximum payment/price you are looking to achieve you can be emailed listings to fit your search criteria. Your email address is needed to set you up for the automatic daily updates.
You will need to be pre-approved if you decide to buy to be able to meet an agent to view and submit offers on any homes of your choice. It only takes a few dozen questions to qualify, go over your options and email you listings to study and compare. Here are some links to study as well as web reference links to many loan program pages offered...

There are a select few lenders willing to go down to a 600 score sometimes lower for VA but they are hard to find. I would recommend The Lenders Network they have helped several of my clients with lower scores get approved.
Yes you get a home loan now. I tell all my clients with lower scores to visit The Lenders Network, I have had several of my clients get approved and close with scores under a 580. So if anyone can get you a loan they can..
