Thank You For Your Service George H. Clark

“Thank you for your service.” This phrase has become the new “Have a nice day.”  As a veteran I hear it often, especially when I am wearing my Retired Air Force shirts or hats or presenting my ID card.  I think America is trying to atone for their shameful treatment of the Vietnam era vets.  I get that and I appreciate the sentiment.  I also appreciate the 10% discount at Home Depot and Lowe’s.

But seriously, what I really want costs a bit more.  I want a decent final resting place for our deceased veterans.  I want medical and financial assistance for those who need it.  There is a need for temporary housing for those, who when asked, served their country, but now need some assistance. We can’t hand out “Thank you for your service” cards to sick and/or homeless vets.  It is time to end the grip and grin followed with lip service.
