i thought you must be serving in a time of war, whether or not you served in combat.
A veteran is just a person that has served at least 6 months of military service, I've never seen combat and I am a vet.
I like that, it is very fitting.I know the point is these guys are impossibly calling themselves veterans of the revolutionary war, which is just crazy. However I did find a neat quote from an unknown author which I think describes veteran perfectly:
Quote:A veteran is someone who, at one point in his/her life, wrote a blank check made payable to "The United States of America," for an amount of "up to and including my life."
