What is a Veteran??

The definition of a Veteran via 


[vet-er-uhn, ve-truhn] Show IPA
1.a person who has had long service or experience in an occupation, office, or the like: a veteran of the police force; a veteran of many sports competitions.
2.a person who has served in a military force, esp. one who has fought in a war: a Vietnam veteran.
3.(of soldiers) having had service or experience in warfare: veteran troops.
4.experienced through long service or practice; having served for a long period: a veteran member of Congress.
5.of, pertaining to, or characteristic of veterans. 
My definition of a Veteran: One who has sacrificed much in order to protect our freedom, given up the convenience that so many of us Americans expect,  put others first in all circumstances, etc {I really could go on and on}. I have two brothers who have served many tours in Iraq and I have the privilege of working at a VA. I can't say THANK YOU enough to my brothers and the Veterans I serve everyday at work. 
Love and miss you both!!!
