Agree with the OP, why should I thank the cannon-fodder? why not thank the arms manufacturers or politicians that start the wars? "Thank you George Bush for making the world a less safer place, thankyou BAE for making bombs that kill innocents..."
And spare me the hyperbole about speaking German--I'm multi-lingual, which is something I am proud of, not this anglo-americentric hegemony that ONLY SPEAK AMERICAN!!!
Go sit on an IED.

I think you would feel differently if you had some loved ones in the Twin Towers on 9/11.

You're free to spout your ignorant ungrateful opinion on an internet forum because of American servicemen/women... so... there's one thing they've done for you.

The title sounds like one of them "entitlement threads". Entitled to this. Entitled to that. Go visit Arlington National Cemetery and spend a day there and think about it when you come back here and speak your mind, which incidentally would land you in a concentration camp or worse in many countries.

I am tired of hearing how the troops fought for my rights as an American citizen and that I should somehow owe them anything. Well I don't own them anything and I don't feel they have fought for my rights in any of the wars in the last 100 or so years. I assure you I am not trolling, but hearing about how I need to pay my respects to the men and women of the armed forces because they did so much for me when they haven't done squat. The armed forces are murderers who fight only for corporate greed by raping and pillaging others. Sure there might be good men and women who are veterans, I have nothing against them as people and I know lives have been lost and have been saved, but I see the armed forces as a whole not anything to glorify or commend but only to be ashamed of.
That is all.

look, here, even criticising the sainted military gets one instantly flamed.
