Any"... A military veteran is Any person who served for Any length of time in Any
military service branch. All veterans are equal.

sent in harm's way.

What is a Combat Veteran?

A combat veteran is any GI who experiences any level of hostility for any duration
resulting from offensive, defensive or friendly fire military action involving a real or
perceived enemy in any pre- or post-designated theater of combat
(war) operations. [See #3, below]

NOTE:

1. Veteran's benefits are based on Congressional regulations determined by Honorable
Discharge or Under Honorable Conditions status.

2. Retirees (either 20+ years service or medical discharge status) are also Veterans.
Retirees are usually eligible for supplementary federal benefits, privileges and access on
military installations, but not necessarily all VA services
(some services are maintained by the former military branch), as regulated by Congress.

3. Wartime medals define various levels of individual combat involvement, sacrifice and/or
valor: http://www.amervets.com/isr.htm

rank to indicate they are not on the active list.
