Recently, while at a popular and well known restaurant I came across a situation that I thought was a little ironic. I walked in an immediately saw posted on the front door that that are raising monies to send children of Wounded Warriors and Disabled Veterans to camp for summer, then by each registrar is the little cabin to place donations. Then to my left is a wall, not a large display, but very noticeable, is "We Support our Troops" with pics of different service members. When I go to pay for my meal I ask if there is a military discount. I get told no.
So if a business is going to advertise that they support the troops should they provide a discount of some sort? Maybe not a large discount, just a way of saying thank you and job well done.
It is easy to post a sign or fly a flag or wear a lapel pin, then pat yourself on the back for "supporting the troops." It is much harder to support the troops in ways that require personal sacrifice from your own pocketbook. I see a lot of the former and not much of the latter here in the red state I live in.
Let's, for a moment, give them the benefit of the doubt. Maybe they just hadn't thought about it. Try saying that to the owner or manager and see what happens. Also, if they are doing the other for appearance....maybe someone need to make sure the money raised is actually going to send military kids to camp.
