A Veteran (from Latin vetus, "old") is a person who has significant experience (and is usually adept and esteemed) and expertise in a particular occupation or field; a Military Veteran is a person who is no longer serving in a military. A Military Veteran that has served directly in combat in a war is further defined as a War Veteran (although not all military conflicts, or areas in which armed combat took place, are necessarily referred to as wars). Military Veterans are unique as a group as their lived experience is so strongly connected to the conduct of war in general and application of professional violence in particular. Therefore, there are a large body of knowledge developed through centuries of scholarly studies that seek to describe, understand and explain their lived experience in and out of service. Griffith with colleagues provides an overview of this research field that addresses veterans general health, transition from military service to civilian life, homelessness, veteran employment, civic engagement and veteran identity as recurrent investigative topics in the field.
American Veteran Experience After World War II (The Greatest Generation): After the Second World War, in part due to the experience of the First World War, most of the participating states set up elaborate veterans' administrations. Within the United States, it was veterans groups, like the American Legion and Veterans of Foreign Wars organization, that pushed for and got the G.I. Bill enacted. These gave veterans access to free or subsidized education and health care. The newly educated GIs created a significant economic impact, and with the aid of VA loans were able to buy housing and establish themselves as part of a growing American middle class. The explosion of the suburbs created sufficient housing for veterans and their families.
A Vietnam Veteran is someone who served in the armed forces of participating countries during the Vietnam War. The term has been used to describe veterans who were in the armed forces of South Vietnam, the United States armed forces, and countries allied to them, whether or not they were stationed in Vietnam during their service. However, the more common usage distinguishes between those who served "in country" and those who did not serve in Vietnam by referring to the "in country" veterans as "Vietnam Veterans" and the others as "Vietnam-Era Veterans". The U.S. government officially refers to all as "Vietnam-Era Veterans". In the English-speaking world, the term "Vietnam Veteran" is not usually used in relation to members of the communist People's Army of Vietnam or the Viet Cong (also known as the National Liberation Front).
