A liberal writer is suggesting in an opinion piece that the category of being a veteran should now include social justice warriors.

Dr. Warren J. Blumenfeld wrote in LGBTQ Nation that a "true" veteran speaks out, stands up and advocates for social justice and freedom.

"Take a few moments to consider those fighting a cultural and figurative civil war to reduce the violence and injustice," he wrote.

Joey Jones, a retired Marine Corps bomb technician, said Monday on Fox & Friends that Blumenfeld's argument is "pretty laughable."

Jones lost both of his legs in a bomb blast while serving in Afghanistan.

"This term 'veteran' is something that's small, but it's a big sentiment and it's something we choose to do as a country," he said.

Blumenfeld asked in his piece why the country has limited the meaning of being a veteran to those who have served in the armed forces.

"What about the practitioners of non-violent resistance in the face of tyranny and oppression?" he said.

Jones added that being a veteran is held in reverence in the military community, and that it's not given lightly.

"To say this term applies to everyone who might get upset and hold up a sign somewhere, that doesn't make any sense at all."
