I don't ask for discounts unless there is a sign saying they give one or I know from an email of something.
I don't expect to get thanks for what I do. I don't do it for that. I do it so that maybe my kids won't have to. I love my job. I love the opportunities the military has given me.
When I am thanked for my service....it kind of embarrasses me. But I say thank you to them. Because obviously they support me and what I do.
That is all.
