I enjoyed interviewing a veteran and I learned a lot. In the military, he is known as Chaplain (Major) Danny Hughes, United States Army. One becomes a veteran after they have served a deployment. A deployment is serving the military in a different country. This can be a war zone, where fighting is taking place.

Chaplain Hughes is active duty (still in the Army), has served in the Army for 12 years and was deployed for one. He served in Jordan, Syria and Kuwait. His call to serve was in response to the 9/11 attacks in 2001. He wanted to help defend his country.
