    • Here is the definition of a US Veteran:

      Under federal law, a veteran is any person who served honorably on active duty in the armed forces of the United States. Discharges marked “general and under honorable conditions” also qualify.

    • Matthew Warren. The question is one of reserve verses active duty. If you have a DD214 that states you were on active duty, With an honorable or general discharge I believe you would be a veteran. However, if you were a reservist on duty 2 weeks a year and a weekend end a month, and were never called to a continuous active status of at least 180 days (I think) then you can’t be active duty. You can retire as a reservist and gain benefits. But, that doesn’t sound like that. Whatever your DD 214 says about your rank that is it, unless you can file a records change request with evidence to the holder of your records and they change it. Thank you for your service brother, I was there in Asheville to bury a friend of mine. It’s a beautiful area. HS1 Jerome Newland USCG/Ret

  2. Are former Afghan/Iraqi translators who are currently living in or are permanent residents of US called veterans consistent with the provisions of the US law?
