The type of military veteran who takes his service far too seriously and constantly lectures others on patriotism and respect of the military; constantly is offended by acts he deems disrespectful to the flag/military/national image. A few defining characteristics of a vetflake are as follows:

1. Most definitely a POG or reservist; spent his entire (3-4 year) military career sitting in a motorpool or an office. Refers to his time in South Korea as a "deployment".

2. Always wears Grunt Style, plus cutoff cammies and/or an operator cap. Always. Church, wedding, funeral, doesn't matter, you have to make sure everyone around you knows that you enlisted for their freedom. Grunt Style is interchangeable with Art15 or Nine Line (as long as the shirt is offensive and has at least one obnoxiously large assaulting flag). Bonus points if the apparel says something about being mentally unstable or hating anyone who didn't serve. The more attention, the better.

3. Begins every Facebook argument with, "AS A VETERAN". Believes the opinion of every veteran is superior to the opinion of any civilian by default. Unless, of course, another veteran think's they're a fucking idiot, in which case that veteran is reduced to civilian status, followed by insults of "fobbit" and "pog".

4. Always brags on Facebook about his DD214, posts "You Have No Power Here" memes, but desperately misses being in the military and hates his life as a Walmart greeter or gas station attendant.
"Hey bro, did you see that hilarious Air Force reenlistment video?!"

"THAT WAS A COMPLETE AN UTTER DISSERVICE TO THE FLAG, THE OATH, THE UNIFORM, AND ALL OF OUR BROTHERS AND SISTERS WHO HAVE DIED FOR OUR FREEDOM. THOSE AIRMEN ARE SCUM, THEY SHOULD BE DEMOTED TO THE LOWEST POSSIBLE GRADE AND DISHONORABLY DISCHARGED. THEY'RE WORSE THAN KAEPERDICK!!!"
