    Because Merica is just so supportive of it's veterans. Honestly, I don't mind. Not the type of person that takes military service as all that special. Just insane enough to do such. Wasn't for the praise that one serves military service anyways. Just fortunate that I was one of the few who can deal with such "military intelligence."

    Is it trying to be humble and understanding enough that I don't few my service as that big a deal. Lucky to have lived from my car accident. Just trying to enjoy retirement, but this crazy world.

    Nobody actually gets off or DOES much for that month.  That 1 day actually sees a lot of events and things going on.  It's like 'Black History Month'.  Does anyone actually DO anything for Black History Month?  Not really.  I'm supportive of the idea of trying to get people to know more about a part of history that's not that broadly known...but making a month out of it has been pretty much a failure at accomplishing that goal, hasn't it?

    I asked my sister this, because she is very liberal and pro LGBTQ, and she said because they can, and I said but the reason they can is because of veterans.

      You're right.  I know I hear about those days every year as they get shoved down our throats like "MLK Day", "***** History MONTH", "Sinko de Mayo".
