Summoned home from Honolulu to the Pacific Northwest after WWII, ex-marine Joe Dover meets and falls for Carmelita Maldonado, a Mexican-American preacher's daughter from California. Unable to resist extramarital temptations, he finds his family life crumbling. The Veteran is the story of a changing society in the 1960s and early 70s, as seen through the lens of a grim memory of war.
