American Sign Language:  "vet"

The sign for VET:

Just spell this concept as "V-E-T."


Signing note: I notice that at high speed the letter "E" in the fingerspelled sign "VET" tends to mutate into two bent fingers resting on the thumb (since you recently used those two fingers to do the letter "V").

Or, if needed for context, you could sign "ANIMAL + DOCTOR" the first time and from then on spell V-E-T

A student asked me if this spelling "V-E-T" could be used for "vet" as in a military veteran.
Yes, you could. You just have to remember "context." If it were me, the first time around I'd sign, "HE ARMY BEFORE HE" to indicate that he was in the military.
