Whenever I chat with someone such as a customer,fellow employee,elc he mentions that he was in the military I always say "Thank you for our country". Most of the time they will say "you are very welcome".
One perosn recently a customer told me how he served in Vietnam and we briefed chatted about it because my dad also fought in Vietnam.
I told him "Thanks for keeping us free". He just looked at me like I was a bit odd.
A couple questions:
1. How do you feel when someone especially a total stranger thanks you for your service?
2. How often do you get thanked?
I'm just curious what are you alls thoughts.
