Yes I believe that as long as he or she had completed their tour of duty, or terms of there enlistment then they would be considered a veteran. If they were also injured requiring a disability rating from the DOD/VA and a removal from service based upon injuries this individual would also be considered a veteran.
If anyone else has information please help assist.

Dear Ms. Swift Pony,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
Please see the Office of Personnel Management page on Veterans Preference in federal hiring for an explanation of that specific benefit. For further information about veteran benefits in general, we suggest that you contact the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Veterans Benefits Administration via their website at https://benefits.va.gov/benefits/
We hope this information is helpful.
