Veteran is a term that refers to persons who have served with the Armed Forces. Veterans are not public officers, servants, agents, or contractors. There are federal and state statutes that provide benefits, privileges and preferences for the welfare of veterans and their dependents. People guilty of mutiny, treason, sabotage, or rendering assistance to the enemy or allies of the enemy forfeit all rights for future benefits administered by the Department of Veterans’ Affairs. A dishonorable discharge will disqualify a veteran from receiving a pension, compensation for service-connected death or disability, or dependency and indemnity compensation. The Department of Veterans’ Affairs is the agency responsible for administering most of the federal laws which provide benefits to veterans and their dependents.
