What is the genealogy of "veteran-ness?" (A multi-part thread)

What (if anything) is a democratic society's obligation to its veterans in the 21st century? One thing I'd be interested in seeing is a kind of historical tracing of what veteran status has meant over time.
My sense is that there is an over-expectation of recognition and status that is a by-product of the "support the troops" mania of the early GWOT, where the Bush administration essentially used "troop support" as a stalking horse for political legitimacy.
If one didn't endorse Bush policies, then one didn't "support the troops," and questioning Bush's policies was rendered (at least among ideologues and partisans) as a Dolchstoß to The Troops in partisan discourses.

Much mirth
