Someone who does less than one enlistment may or may be considered prior service, depending on the circumstances.
As the OP stated, that is MY personal opinion of what the requirements and ranking should be.

If anyone who enlists or was drafted, served their tour honorably, and was discharged, is a veteran.

You did your time and was available to serve anywhere and in any situation as required by your country.
So........ a Veteran.
