Not t hijack this thread but here is the Home Depot email reply
A veteran doesn't mean retired. Over the years these two have merged which is wrong. A Veteran is someone who served but not necessary mean they are retired. I spent 21 years in and have a valid ID card and I was in Vietnam which makes me a Veteran. But the two don't mean the same.
