The veteran responds “Thank you for your service” – Denver Post.

Grandchildren would like to reject grandparents, because - Denver Post.

Dear Amy: I am a 75 year veteran. I want to express some of my feelings when people say, “Thank you for your (military) service.”

I was in the U.S. Army from 1966 to 1969 and served at a base in a large metropolitan area. I have never been called up to serve in a war zone, but I know many people who have expressed similar feelings.

During this time, if you were “off base”, you had to be in uniform.

On several airplane flights or city tours, we were verbally assaulted by college age groups.

They will spit on us, call us “child killers, murderers, military pawns” and think of something else.

Those who serve today and in the recent past deserve all the praise they receive.

I have raised the tab as a thank you for the many soldiers who have traveled. But I want the parents and grandparents of these brave soldiers to think about their own actions for the Vietnamese-era servants.

There are many wounds that never heal.

I find the words “thank you for your service” hollow and frustrating.

– Old veteran.

Dear Veteran: Anyone familiar with the national dynamics of the tumultuous Vietnam era can fully understand your reaction to this sentence.
