I'm a military (Navy) veteran. In all the years only one person, a woman store clerk, has thanked me for serving. The lady who did thank me is daughter of a retired Navy man.

I don't believe in nationalism and I don't support war. I think it's unfortunate that we can't resolve things with words instead of wars, and I refuse to acknowledge that anyone who willingly decided to fight in a war is a hero of any sort. The real heroes are the ones that stand up and let their voice be heard, the ones who move people to make peace. If more people decided to work towards peace and diplomacy instead of becoming soldiers, I think we could end war forever. Unfortunately joining the armed services is glorified and seen as noble, when the true purpose is inhumane and ugly.

I do not support war and there are many things that I don't agree with in the military. That has nothing to do with thanking veterans. Whether we like it or not. There are wars and someone needs to fight them. I could never do that job and so I have respect for people that do. If everyone in the United States decided to work on peace and diplomacy than we would be defenseless when attacked by another country's army.

I am sorry that you refuse to acknowledge anyone who who willingly decides to fight in a war. Where do you think your freedoms came from. Someone at some time had to fight to get them for all of us. I would rather live in a peaceful world but that is not happening. I will thank all ,my ancestors who fought for my freedoms and to my 2 children who came safely home from their deployments overseas. I also thank every service man and woman out there who are out there helping me to keep my freedom and keep me safe.
WE ALL HAVE OUR OWN OPINIONS. i WILL NEVER DISGRACE MY CHILDREN , THEIR FRIENDS, AND OTHER SERVICE MEN AND WOMEN WHO HAVE GIVEN THEIR LIVES OR HAVE BEEN INJURED IN ANY WAR TO HELP ME TO BE FREE!!!

Dislike this comment! Go move to Costa Rica were they don't have a military. The military is like the police or law enforcement, they stop crimes from happening or find the one's responsible. You try and stand up to a guy robbing you or to a terrorist. Let's see what happens. To all of you that liked this comment can go join him. See you on the other side.

KELLYKATT,
"Thou shalt not kill" is not the G-d given commandment.
The commandment is, "Thou shalt not Murder".

There are plenty of times where killing was deemed necessary and required by G-d, especially in war.
Those who defend us deserve our deepest thanks. If you don't like the mission of the military's leaders that is another thing.
You are entitled to an opinion of course, but don't use G-d's law as a backup when it doesn't fit so well.

"Thou shalt not kill." You tell that to the terrorist that attacked us on Sept. 11. To the bombing that occur in embassies all over the world. To the nuclear threat that we get from other nations. If it was that easy then there would be world peace forever. The military is protecting you. Protecting you from the evil and wickedness of this world. Ever heard of St. Michael's Prayer?

I am sure that we all wish war was unnecessary and never happened. It certainly is very devastating to the servicemen and women as well as civilians. Devastation in the form of physical harm, emotional well being, and financial just to name a few. However, I am confident in my knowledge that not all people are "moved by peace" some people are just down right evil. When those people come into to power they have a way of gaining support and committing some pretty awful stuff. Talking can only get you so far in some situations. When the time comes to defend your self you act upon it or you cease to exist. I am grateful that during those times we have brave individuals who fight to preserve our freedoms of democracy. Just think you could live under a totalitarian government where you could not even publicly speak about certain topics such as disapproval in the government and/or military.

I know it's necessary to deal with some "evil people" with fighting and wars, but that doesn't really fix the problem. There is something wrong with mankind that people like that even exist. Cultures are diseased when the people want to kill others because of their different culture, religion, or nationalism. We can fight them, but what really needs to be done is something to fix their culture so people like that are seen for what they are and dealt with before they become a problem. In the US we allow freedom of speech and assembly, but even those are limited when people start threatening others. Hate groups and extremists have been largely extinguished from our country. Think of the KKK, they had to be dealt with using violence at first but society has changed and groups like that aren't as much of a problem today simply because they and their anti-humanist views are looked down upon.

Let's face it, WWII veterans are few and far between these days. Even Vietnam veterans are getting old, and they deserve an apology more than a thanks. Most of today's veterans are from Iraq and Afghanistan, and no matter how noble their intentions for enlisting, many of them are now war criminals.

Take a look at Guantanamo, Abu Ghraib, Bagram, and those are just the ones we know about. The precedent set at Nuremberg is that "following orders" is limited mitigation but not actually a defence, and that was when it was used by conscripts of a dictatorship who could honestly say they didn't have a choice about enlisting.

Always so grateful to those who stare evil in the face and are willing to sacrifice their lives/time with their families/comforts of U.S. to uphold order and freedom for others in parts of the world that don't experience the freedoms we do. NO ONE wants war, but insane leaders need to be controlled from the tyrannical damage they are capable of. Our soldiers are the ones willing to run toward danger to save us, to keep us safe. How grateful we should all be... they have kept danger away from our country. Thank you to ALL of the military: On every level!!

You heathen you! LOL Just kidding. :)

Have all these people thanking veterans thanked a teacher or a firefighter? It's kind of sad that we're singling out one group instead of acknowledging that most people try to add value to the world in their own way. Personally I always thought the best way to thank me was to use the values I fought for and to ensure those that got hurt in their service were well taken care of.

No I haven't I am grateful however I don't find it necessary to stop a veteran in the middle of what they are doing to thank them for a job they willingly accepted and are paid to do. No one stops a police officer or firefighter and thanks them for putting their lives on the lane for their jobs. I'm grateful they are fighting to protect our country and our safety, but I'm not going to harass them with empty thank yous like most people do. Words are cheep in my book. If you are truly grateful,you should appreciate their gift of freedom and protection. They didn't enlist for thank yous and it is more insulting to just throw a gift away.

No one said we were heroes, in fact we don't need your thanks. We do it to protect all of our freedoms. In fact I get uncomfortable when some one thanks me for my service. I didn't do it for the thanks, or for the pay. I did it because I love America and wish for my children and grandchildren to enjoy the freedoms that many countries do not have. If you have ever been to nearly any foreign country you would appreciate what we have here.

We did not do it for your thanks or expect anyone's thanks. We served to protect your freedom, and the freedom of our families. We certainly did not do it for the money. When my husband and I were on active duty we received thousands of dollars less pay than our civilian counter parts. No regrets, proud to do what we could for America's defense.
