Veteran

From Warhammer 40k - Lexicanum

A veteran is a soldier, be it from the Imperial Guard, Space Marines or any other army, who has seen a great number of battle actions and survived. They are more experienced and hardened. Most of the time a veteran will be asigned to lead a squad or unit. Sometimes they will be formed into a separate unit. The Black Templars Sword Brethren and Space Wolves Wolf Guard are examples of this. In other Space Marine chapters, the First Company is comprised solely of veterans.

Veterans are allowed to take equipment from the army's armoury whereas "regular" troops may not. With Space Marines for instance, veterans are the only troops allowed to use Terminator Armour.
