Sometimes I see a uniform or meet a veteran and I struggle for what to say to them so as not to offend. What would you tell the average civy to say to vets and returning soldiers that would help ease their pain?

Well thought out my friend! I to have seen way to many go young. Its tragic but to honestly say that I myself have not thought about it would be a lie and I served NAVY. I cant even begin to feel what our Infantry goes through on a daily basis. MORE SHOULD BE DONE! Wounded Warrior Foundation is an excellent starting point. I would suggest anybody who has not heard of look into it...!
