I was in the Navy Reserve and was discharged in basic training due to medical reasons.
I had not had issues prior to basic,
but could not walk due to knee problems.
I was in the RTC from mid-August to just before New Year`s.
I qualified for a VA home loan and medical benefits which would indicate I`m a veteran.
I don`t go around saying I am because I wish I could have served as I had wanted to,
but I would still serve now if needed.
I think being a veteran depends on why you signed up and why you served,
regardless of why you were discharged (or not).
