Response to Recursion (Original post)

16. The "thank you for your service" is an irritant. It's an echo of that publicity seeking,

 

arms-trading-to-our-enemies Ollie North and others on the Faux News channel.

Before Ollie North and Faux News channel was created, did anyone go around and thank WW I vets, WW II vets, Korean War Vets, or Viet Nam vets for their service?

Ollie North, in contrast to that professional sneering propagandist Bill O'Reilly, actually served. And he is a combat vet. But so what? In contrast to his sworn oath to "support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic," he knowingly participated in trading arms to Iran.

No vet should want a "thanks for your service" from such a person, from a chicken-hawk O"Reilly, or anyone who is echoing the thank-your-for-your-service phrase that they publicized with their Faux News station.
