Veteran and non-veteran donations.
yes, technically, because there were wars in Thailand due to the vietnam war, so the person even though did not fight in Vietnam, was involved in the vietnam war and should be considered a vietnam war veteran
No particular individual defined the term. A veteran, in this sense, means someone who served in a particular conflict, Vietnam in this case.
Unless the government amended it's regulations since the Vietnam era, yes.
Anyone regardless of rank, branch of service, or jobspeciality, who served in country or in the waters off the coast and were awarded a Vietnam campaign ribbon indicating that they did so is a Vietnam veteran, regardless of the job they performed. The guy who was a chaplain's assistant, cook or clerk typist etc, who served there is a Vietnam veteran just as the combat veteran.
It means Vietnam vet (veteran).
According to the VVA the average age of the Vietnam veteran was 19.
He/She is a Veitnam Era Veteran.

The Vietnam War 'era' was 1961 to 1975.

Abrams, along with a host of other men, was a WWII veteran; and commander of US Forces in Vietnam...he replaced Westmoreland, who was also a WWII veteran.
As with MOST senior leaders during the Vietnam War, LBJ was a WWII veteran.
Unless you actually served in Viet Nam you are not a Viet Nam Veteran. You are considered a Veteran. I served from 1964-1967 and never was sent to Viet Nam, but was sent to Germany. I am a Veteran but not a Viet Nam Veteran.Additional infoVietnam vets are vets that served from 1964 to 1975 and received the Vietnam Service Metal (VSM ). The military had regulations covering who received the VSM. So since you did not serve during those dates, you would not be eligible for the VSM and therefore not considered a Vietnam Veteran. (If you had served anytime from 1964 to 1975 and had not received the VSM, you would be referred to as a Vietnam Era Veteran.
Most vets are accepted by their fellow countrymen. Many Viet Vets either had to lie (say they weren't in Vietnam) or fight their countrymen upon their return.
A former member of the military who participated in actual combat operations in Vietnam during the Vietnam War (roughly 1959-1973).
Not everyone who served during the era of the Vietnam War went to Vietnam. Some remained in cantonment. Some participated in other military actions during this era (e.g., the occupation of the Dominican Republic, etc.). Some were stationed in other countries in support of operations in Vietnam. "Vietnam-era veteran" refers to them.
The general noun "veteran", as in "Mary is a veteran" is not capitalized. "The Vietnam veterans marched in the parade". The word is capitalized when it is part of a title; an in Veterans' Day, or Veterans' Administration.
