VA Inspections of Existing Home
From reading the VA website I believe that any inspector can do an inspection for an existing home that is using a VA mortgage. However, if you are using a VA loan for a house that is being constructed you need to be on the VA approved inspector list. Am I correct?

Then there is the existing construction...and the VA Appraisal:
VA Appraisal Inspections on existing properties are NOT HI inspections, and not done by Compliance Inspectors, they must be done by an approved FHA/HUD/VA Appraiser.
A VA inspection is an Appraiser Inspection. See following quoted from VA site:
Although the appraiser views the property and may require repairs, he or she is not a home inspector that would test the mechanical systems, go on the roof, test the structure, etc. VA recommends the veteran consider hiring a home inspector if he or she has concerns about the property condition. Although VA may guarantee the loan, the VA appraisal will not guarantee the condition of the property.
