My heartfelt thanks to all the vets, active, reservists, and the people that support their friends and family! And to my son Austin, thank you son for serving your country in the United States Navy, and now a Naval reservist. Words can't express how proud I am of you. I love you!

Thank you vets for serving. You should all get free breakfast, be able to drive in the car-pool lane, cut in line at the store, be given the best seat everywhere, win the lottery. I love you all for the huge sacrifice you made. THANK YOU!!

interesting tale.
I have been shopping at the big box store that folks like to disrespect for many years. They have a few nicely placed parking places signed for veterans. On Veterans Day they offer and publish a military discount of 10%.

I was in there a few weeks ago and asked if that discount is available only on Memorial Day and Veterans Day. The cashier told me it was always available, just ask, and provide military I.D. So out came my Navy I.D. card from way back when. Saved 10% :D

registers are programmed for this <M> Military Appreciation Discount

Both Lowe's and Home Depot also offer 10% veteran discounts every day. Just ask and show your military ID - no matter how old.

Last winter I dug out my circa 1964 USMC ID and even though the photo is pretty much faded out, both stores have no problem accepting it and hardly look at it.

But, you gotta ask before they ring the items on the registers.
