The "Thank you for your service" we now say to veterans is starting to sound like the "God bless you" we say after you sneeze.
And with Veterans Day coming up, consider changing the flow a little, particularly with the newer veterans of our most recent, confused wars.
When the newly returned warrior says he/she is a veteran, apologize.
Tell him/her you're sorry about that WMD lie. Tell him you're sorry about the food stamp cuts.
Tell her you're sorry there are no union jobs left in the county. Tell him you're sorry that so much of the work out there is part-time.
Tell him you're sorry the steel mill in his hometown closed 15 years ago. Tell her you're sorry...
