I feel bad for the Vietnam vets who got spat on or otherwise abused, and it breaks my heart to see a guy who has been badly wounded or when I attend a funeral.

But while well-meaning, this is starting to bug me. Go be a good citizen, raise good kids, pay your taxes, live a good life. This pro-forma statement isn't working for me. Now get off my lawn......
Are you saying that the military is held in high regard at present time? Are you the type of guy to wear an Army shirt, or your uniform to Wal-Mart? How would anyone compliment you on your service if you didn't say something first.
