i have been on deployment twice for a total of 15 months and in that time went to Malaysia, Dubai, Bahrain, Singapore and Hawaii on my first deployment then my second one we went to Thailand, Dubai, Bahrain, Dubai, Bahrain, and Antalia Turkey.
Bahrain sucks badly. Malaysia was fun but a pit everywhere else was a lot of fun especially Thailand.

My brother is an officer in the Navy and didn't like it when people thanked him for this service. But then someone explained that they grew up during Vietnam and at that time people looked down on the military and despised them, so when they thank my brother for his service, they weren't just thanking him but also those who served before him.

Ultimately, I'd rather our society appreciate, respect, and honor our soldiers, sailors, and airmen even if we don't agree with our government. I see thanking them as one of the ways of ingraining that in our society and perpetuating it.

And yes, I do thank my brother for his service just to annoy him.

It's just really nice to be acknowledged sometimes. Not always, but most people don't really care. It's nice to come across a sincere person who think what we do is great.

To say your "sick and tired of it" on a public forum to seems almost disrespectful. Ive only been in the marines 2 years and feel like I havent done much. No deployments, hardships, nothing like that yet. But the reason people thank you is because you are WILLING to do what they can not. To say things like that "out loud" makes me think you arent proud of what you did. 4 years or 20 years, you still volenteered to do what thousands of others were to afraid to do.

Maybe it's because you don't feel like you accomplished anything or you're not worthy of the thanks. Maybe the people should confirmed whether you really "served" or just held the job as a way to pay the bills and you're not really patriotic. But to say your tired of hearing people say thank you for your service is sad. I really hope you just mean the repeativness and not the meaning behind it, because although its cool to be humble, you're going to leave a bed impression with someone that supports military and they may change their mind.
I'm not one to flaunt military at all, but I do share my experiences and will with anyone that asks. I often wonder about all these musicians that sing about war and stuff. Do they really genuinely care or are they using the military to help push their own agenda...? But regardless it's nice to have people on your side it I don't envy the vets that came home to hatred. With our in patriotic wanna-be president I have a feeling it could turn that way.
My usual response is "thank you for the support" because without people like that who support us then our job would be much different. I always have the urge my self to thank past veterans because I all honesty they are the ones that sacrifice for today's generations and the guys and girls that serve now are sacrificing for the future.
