Every November 11th America honors it’s most esteemed citizens past and present by dedicating that one day as Veterans Day.  These incredible people represent less than one percent of the American public.  This petition would ask to make every day “Veteran’s” day by formally reestablishing the word veteran  as a proper noun in American vernacular and dictionaries.  This would mean that the word veteran should always be capitalized in writing, which would convey the proper respect and courtesy that the word should command. 

Furthermore, this petition would declare the word veteran be used only to denote current or former military members.  No longer would it be politically correct to use the word veteran as a moniker to describe experienced athletes, business people, or any other occupation or affinity.  This word should be protected and given the venerable distinction that it deserves.

The word veteran is currently listed in the Oxford dictionary as: “A person who has had long experience in a particular field.”  The secondary definition states: “A person who has served in the military.”  The word veteran should never be secondary to any other group of people under any circumstance.
