A late holiday present

Here's something I did in the airport over the holidays. Walk up to a sailor/soldier/marine whom you see in the airport or the bus depot or whatever and say simple "Thank you for your service." It's very simple, and it needs to be said.

I was in the mall in Manhattan, Kansas, when two matrons approached, deep in conversation. One looked up, noticed a soldier passing, and said without missing a beat, "Young man, thank you for your service." Took him, and me, completely by surprise. I was grateful for the opportunity to witness her kindness, and will pass it on whenever possible.
