This chapter attends to the discourses that constitute epistimologies about the ‘veteran offender’ in England and Wales. By drawing on some of the key tools offered by govermentality theorists, the ways in which discources have emereged are analysed to determine how narratives function politically and define veteran offender subjectivities and governmental intervention. In doing so, it becomes clear that criminological voices and the voices of veteran offenders remain marginal to the ever evolving debate about veterans, crime and veteran offender policies. In response, the chapter suggests that to bring these voices to the fore a different analytical agenda is required - which is referred to here as ‘veteranality’.
