Afghanistan Marine veteran Hunter Garth (pictured) is tired of hearing “Thank you for your service.” Mike Freedman, a Green Beret, calls it the “thank you for your service phenomenon.” To some recent vets — by no stretch all of them — the thanks comes across as shallow, disconnected, a reflexive offering from people who, while […]
