I want to say there should be a difference. Because I have seen people come in pass basic and go to their unit and do a couple years and get out without deploying and call themselves veterans. There should definitely be a different verbage for someone like that than as you described been in served several years been on deployment and has seen combat. That's kind of taking away the meaning of the word. But that's just my thoughts.

If you serve and serve honorably you are a veteran. If you go to war, you are a combat veteran.
