We Are Team Veteran (オレたちベテラン軍 Oretachi Beteran-gun?) was a stable formed in Dragon Gate promotion.

The foundation of the group started on January 19, 2012, when CIMA was shockingly exiled from Blood Warriors during a 10-Man Loser Leaves Unit Match as part of a takeover by Akira Tozawa, BxB Hulk and Cyber Kong. CIMA's defeat prompted a rescue by his eternal partner Don Fujii. The duo vowed to destroy the new Blood Warriors regime and later added their other eternal partner "Hollywood" Stalker Ichikawa to their cause. Going into February, the trio called upon assistance from TAKA Michinoku and Sanshiro Takagi in a period when Blood Warriors was the only unit in Dragon Gate. On February 25, they rescued Gamma from a Blood Warriors assault and accepted him into their group. The next night, Gamma challenged for the vacant Open the Triangle Gate Championship and enlisted Don Fujii and Masaaki Mochizuki to be his partners. Mochizuki accepted and ended his eternal feud with CIMA. Dragon Kid was quietly added, making their group official.
