The definitions of “veteran” and “service-disabled veteran” can be found in the United States Code, specifically 38 U.S.C. 101(2) and (16), as established by the Department of Veterans Affairs. According to these definitions, a “veteran” refers to an individual who served in the active military, naval, or air service and received a discharge or release under conditions that are not dishonorable. On the other hand, “service-connected” indicates that a disability or death was incurred or aggravated in the line of duty during active military, naval, or air service. It is presumed that injuries or diseases acquired during military service were incurred in the line of duty, unless they resulted from the veteran’s own misconduct or abuse of alcohol or drugs, or were obtained while absent without permission or while under confinement by military or civilian authorities for serious crimes.
