"I am a seasoned veteran."

The expression probably began as a description of someone in the military who had seen combat several times.  Now it is used to describe almost anyone who has a lot of experience of doing something difficult, unpleasant, demanding, etc.  The term could be used, for example, to describe a politician, policeman, fireman, surgeon, teacher, etc.
