Several times while shopping, I have seen servicemen and women. I have approached them, shook their hands and said "Thank you for your service to our country". Once, at the time of checkout, I urged one soldier to go ahead of me because I wasn't really in a rush and I was sure he had better ways to spend his time than standing in line. Tears came into his eyes and he politely refused, but thanked me just the same. You see I am 64 years old and use a walker.
