Definition of "Veteran" for  NRCS veteran initiatives: "The term veteran farmer or rancher (VFR) means a person who served in the United States Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force, and Coast Guard, including the reserve components thereof, and who was discharged or released therefrom under conditions other than dishonorable and who also meets the definition of beginning farmer or rancher (BFR). The VFR must: a) not have operated a farm or ranch; or b) not have operated a farm or ranch for more than 10 consecutive years. For a legal entity or joint operation to be considered a VFR entity, all members must meet the definition of VFR. A legal entity or joint operation can be a Veteran Farmer or Rancher only if all individual members independently qualify. Reference

Risk Management Agency programs have a different definition.
