28. is "thank you for your service" the most hollow opening comment that you can say to a wounded troop?
I want the term, "thank you for your service" to be removed from the lexicon. This is a meaningless, cover-my-ass kind of opening. People say "thanks for your service" and then they rip or put down the troops.
Many of us are thankful for their sacrifice, but we need to SHOW it and not just SAY it.
