Q. I am in the National Guard or I am an active duty military member, am I considered a veteran?


No, you are a veteran only if you have been discharged from Active Duty (other than dishonorably). Only a member of the National Guard who was activated and then discharged would meet the definition. Active Duty members of the military are not veterans until discharged.
