Who Counts as a Veteran?

This article by the Associated Press has lots of interesting things to say about the experiences of female veterans returning home to the United States.

FP readers might be particularly interested to read about the experiences of women like Sergeant Rachel McNeill, who was so affected by the way that she was treated by both civilians and Veterans Affairs staff that she started to question whether or not she was really a veteran.

It seems clear to most people that the way we wage wars is changing. How long will it be until we can accept that the faces and experiences of our soldiers are changing, too?
