An interesting read here. It is really not what you think!

I always had issues when someone walked up to me and stated the generic "thank you for your service". It just felt like an awkward situation to me. I didn't feel like I was doing a service to anyone. It was fun, I learned a lot, and it was an awesome life experience. What am I being thanked for? Living my life? I understand why people say it, but any answer I could give just sounds shallow in my head so it sounded hollow when put into words...
I followed the link, Fred. Fascinating reading - including all the comments. Obviously its a personal thing how a vet responds to that line. Thanks for drawing our attention to it.
You wrote you always 'had' issues with it. Does that mean you don't any more?
Just think the other way. it is the demand of courtesy.
