as well as commemorating wars won/lost, armistice day, D-day, etc., etc., The PSA ads regarding vets suck too, that 'entitlement complex' reeks so
badly that I have to change the channel.
I used to get a good deal of calls at work when a person drops the meme, 'I'm a/was a veteran in xyz war, and the service I get from your business
sucks and I deserve better...' and so on.
Veterans are no better than civilians and vice versa. The only choice I have to is to ignore that and make a humane segued focus on the nature of the
call. I cannot in good conscience say "thank you for your service" because I didn't directly ask the person to do that for me, the Selective Service
System and other things involved in politics.
