Aren't all contractors veterans?
Just saw someone calling them two separate things so just wondering..

Definition of a Veteran is someone who has completed 180 days (6 months) of their enlistment contracts.
Do contractors ENLIST and go thru Boot camp? NO.
then they are not any sort of "Veterans".

First, the term 'contractor' just means someone working under a contract for someone else. The term you are looking for is 'defense contractor.'
Plenty of defense contractors are NOT veterans. The mentally challenged people that have the cleaning contracts for many bases aren't. The blind people working for Skillcraft and Lighthouse for the blind aren't. The vast majority of contractors working on bases in the middle east are from South Asia, the Philippines, and Africa.

No. Why would you think that? Veterans are those who have served. Contractors are those working for the military under contract, but, they are not part of the military itself.

No not all contractors are vets at all, some have been doing that work since they graduate college and never served a day.

No. Contractors are contractors- some happen to be veterans too, but contractors aren't vets just as a contractor.

Nope. Military contractors often are because the security clearance is expensive. Its easier to train someone with clearance for a job than hire someone who is trained but has to go though the long FBI process. But they don't have to be. Sometimes companies do pay the bill for it.

The facts are that I'm a Vietnam veteran and was a computer support contractor for a few decades.

nope, 'contractors' and 'veterans' have nothing to do with each other ..............Source(s): Retired Army SFC and military contractor.
