Maybe this post will be removed by the moderators but I just wanted to say how much I admire you folks in the US for the way you treat your veterans. I spent a total of about 14 years in the Canadian military (between the regular forces and the reserves). Here at home, only one person has ever thanked me for my service. Things are a lot different in the United States. In the US, veterans are appreciated (even Canadian veterans) and many people--including many on this board--consistently say: "Thank you for your service". Well I want to say: "Thank you for your thoughtfulness and for your appreciation."
