Questions about example sentences with, and the definition and usage of "Vet"

The meaning of "Vet" in various phrases and sentences

Q: O que significa The old vet in action.
What does he mean to say? Like military people turn around in their strange way?

A: "The old vet" refers to an old man who was in the military. Former military members are called "veterans" or just "vets" for short.

When you're in the military you often have to "take action" such as attacking another force, storming a beach, etc.

However, this man is old and he's a vet - he's no longer taking action in a military sense. But he's still got his pride, he can still move on his own, he's going to be active and able for as long as he can.

So this sentence highlights that even though the old man can't act in the military sense anymore, he can still take smaller actions in what remains of his life. The narrator is sort of smiling in words at the old man's pride and ability to still take whatever action he can.
Q: O que significa you are wounded vet ?

Q: O que significa vets fees?
A: Vets fees = veterinarian fees or the cost of taking an animal to the veterinarian (the vet)
Q: O que significa vet out?
A: Apparently, "to vet" comes from horse racing, where they would require a horse to be checked out by a veterinarian before a race, therefor 'vet' takes the general meaning of "to check". So, "vet out" would be "check out". "You should get this horse vetted out." However, this phrase is completely unknown to me. I don't know if they still use it in horse racing, but it's definitely never used in normal conversation to my knowledge.
