I spent 4 years in USAF (2x331b) and have honorable discharge hanging on my wall. That being said my 4 years can not compare to people that give their whole life protecting this country. I generally reserve "Veteran Status" to people that have served for much longer then my 4 short years. My question is as follows... Does serving 4 years qualify you as a Veteran? Thanks Dave Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
