Commentary: Civilians can thank troops, veterans just by paying attention
from Navy Times
Army Maj. L. Burton Brender writes: "When I returned from Iraq in 2007, I took my family on a Christmas vacation to Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, a resort town that combines the glitz of Las Vegas with the traditional values of rural America. One night, while attending a concert full of celebrity impersonators, I was caught off guard when, during intermission, "Elvis" put down his guitar and asked every veteran in the audience to stand. I was embarrassed, but I stood up with a handful of others as the audience applauded and The King thanked us for our service."
