To some I am considered a doctor,
and to many, my title is abbreviated.
I was also once a soldier who fought for many years.
After many battles, I have at last retired and have found other things to do.

Who am I?

Well that amazes me since I considered it to be original. Oh well, great minds think alike.

It was an intereting riddle.

Just a note: a veteran need not have actually fought in any battles, merely served in the armed forces.
Otherwise, good teaser.

Got it, but thought I was wrong.

Also, 'some consider a doctor' was mis-leading, as a vet is indeed a doctor of veterinary medicine, licensed and all!

I didn't like this one at all. I think it's misleading. The question should be something more like "Which word am I?" because to ask "Who am I?" implies it is a single person who is both a doctor and a soldier. But, really, it's the word that can refer to either a doctor or a soldier.

I thought that the person was a military doctor, and after being in the military went on to be an M.D.

Even though I got it, I agree with those who say some of it is inaccurate. I grew up in a military family, my father is a veteran, even though he never saw combat, even the "many years" part can be misleading, you only have to serve through one enlistment (5 years I think) to be considered a vet.
And as pointed out,, a vet(erinarian) is a much a doctor as an MD, he just has animals as patients. Veterinary school is as long as (if not longer) than medical school.

I enjoyed this one. But for some reason I couldn't get the answer.
