Christians and other religious followers quibble over which “holiday” is more holy – Easter or Christmas?
Veterans quibble over whether Memorial Day or Veterans Day is more significant?
(Veterans Day honors everybody who wore a uniform, while Memorial Day honors those who paid the “ultimate price”.)
“Thank you for your service” is a polite courtesy, but some of us consider it trite and hollow.
When we were young and well-muscled with short hair, we would have loved that trite and hollow expression.
Today, we are happy for the younger veterans – they deserve the all respect and appreciation we didn’t get!
