The paper discusses the social position of war veterans in republican and imperial Rome and in post-war Croatia, focusing on comparison of state care for veterans. During more than two millennia a constant will of the community to compensate for veterans’ sacrifice in war is cleary distinguished. It is found that societies tend to compensate the veterans with its most valuable resources and goods. These are also used to facilitate the reintegration of veterans in civil life. On the other hand, the very contents of the rights and benefits granted to veterans differ from society to society and depend on its historical development.
