A "disabled veteran" is one of the following:

of a service-connected disability.
A "recently separated veteran" means any veteran during the three-year period
beginning on the date of such veteran’s discharge or release from active duty
in the U.S. military, ground, naval, or air service.
An "active duty wartime or campaign badge veteran" means a veteran who
served on active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service during a
war, or in a campaign or expedition for which a campaign badge has been
authorized under the laws administered by the Department of Defense.
An "Armed forces service medal veteran" means a veteran who, while serving
on active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service, participated in
a United States military operation for which an Armed Forces service medal
was awarded pursuant to Executive Order 12985.
