What is a Veteran? For VA purposes, a “veteran” is someone who meets the criteria established by Congress for eligibility for VA benefits. Under Title 38 of the U.S. Code a veteran is defined as a “person who served in the active military, naval, or air service, and who was discharged or released therefrom under conditions other than dishonorable.” When the VA evaluates a person’s veteran status, it examines his or her service record to make its determination. The VA considers multiple factors like: the length of active service, the time-period when that service occurred, and the character or type of service. The individual must have “active military, naval or air service” to be considered a veteran for most government purposes. Active service means full-time service in the Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force or Coast Guard and available to report for duty 7 days a week, 24 hours a day.
