  NOTE: Veterans are men and women who served on active duty in the U.S. Armed Forces and were not on active duty at the time of the survey. The
Gulf War era began in August 1990 and continues to the present day. It is divided into two periods of service: Gulf War era II (September
2001-present) and Gulf War era I (August 1990-August 2001).  Veterans are counted in only one period of service, their most recent period.
Data do not include Reserve and National Guard members who have never been called to Active Duty.
