Armed forces veteran
In an employment manual it definitely refers to this; thus Ma. Elena's reply was the correct one... I clarified and supported her reply because I have translated many such manuals, and what I always use is what she suggested, though she was not completely sure what it referred to. But I am sure.
Employment manuals in the USA talk about discrimination being prohibited on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, age, veteran status, etc. and the latter means no one may discriminate against you because you are a veteran... of the US Armed Forces.
