He gets some credit for ROTC so I think right now it counts as 4 years but I could be wrong on that

PTSD

 So if a military member does not know when veterans day is they must have PTSD? lol

I would think it is a little odd. But maybe he doesn't care to know, it may seem like a bad thing, but maybe he has lost some men of his own and it's hard for him to deal with the holiday? I don't know, that's only a speculation, I would have to know this soldier personally to know.
