My husband hates it when people thank him because he feels he was only doing what he signed up for, it wasn't a choice.
How do you or your SO feel when someone thanks them?

My husband has been serving for 18+years. He CHOSE to sign up. He appreciates it. Just as we say thanks to all the EMT's, firemen, and police officers out there. Thanks for serving. without them, our cities could not fully function.

My Pop-Pop was in WW II and would be very embarrassed if someone said it to him, he would smile and say your welcome....He was awesome!
My Uncle was saying a few years ago, When I came home I never got any Thank you;s..So I said Thank you and he said I was just joking hon, if you EXPECT to be patted on the back for service you shouldn't be in it....We have many uncle's and other family that served, most don't talk about it alot except the one that was a marine....he is a TRIP!! LOL
