Please Don Very interesting article on some NOT ALL vets way of thinking now that they are out of service. I have never been in the service even though I tried to join. Medical condition ( Von Willibrands = Free Bleeder ) So I have no way of remotely understanding this group of vets way of thinking.. So I asked my dad who did serve thru the draft back in the day and he doesn't get it either. He just says they are spoiled brats. They should try coming back when people spit on you, shunned you, etc for being a vet... Granted there is the whole 3-4 generation gap there.. For most of the general public there is no way to fully show our gratitude for what the military does but to say Thanks. There are companies an organizations that try to hire vets when all possible, they have way more assistance programs then any other generation of Vets before them. What more do they want.. If we the public did not say thanks, have parades, assistance programs etc, they would be the same ones saying we are ungrateful...So I'd like to hear from some vets opinions on this..
