Kind of confused on this one; it says the WHO is all military veterans, yet the fine print excludes active duty guys. Anyone care to shed some light on this?

All definitions of a veteran that I have ever seen basically define it as someone who has been there and done that and moved on.
Although you can be a war veteran of Afghanistan or Iraq, you become a Military Veteran after you have served as I understand the definition of a Military Veteran. Regardless of the definition you are welcome to come out and fish as a volunteer for free. Thank you for your service to our Country.

Thanks for the replies, I appreciate what you all do for us military guys; active, retired, or just no longer serving. I just thought it was kind of confusing when you read the fine print on the flyer. (I guess being so close to Camp Lejeune, the active duty guys and gals could make 400pier passes go pretty quickly)

Speckhunter, I agree there are many definitions of what it means to be a veteran, just thought it was weird to exclude the current ones.

I hope you didn't think I was complaining or anything about what I am sure you put a lot of time and effort into. Besides, the active duty guys get taken care of really well during MAD.

After the explanations it makes much more sense, and thanks for the invite.
