Not a Vet. Thank you all for keeping us safe.
I just remember when I was away from home in the service and it was New Year's eve and I was all alone. The major who lived across the street knew I was alone and he basically ordered me to his party and he made sure I was welcome among the field grade officers there and he made sure I got so drunk, I had to low crawl home across the road in three foot deep snow! That's the military taking care of their own. It's a tradition I try to continue.
So the next time you're in an airport and you see a lonley looking G.I. or marine, try and see if you can make his day a little bit brighter. Maybe offer him dinner on you or something. Saying thanks is nice....but it only takes a LITTLE bit more to really make him or her feel good about laying it all on the line.
