There are a couple of us Veterans fm early 60's to one younger one from early 90's that see each other at the same time at the Citrus Café around 9:45 am, not every day. Only when you feel like it. We sit at the counter and may have to yell across. lol. I used to volunteer at our local Veterans Rehab shelter for 2 years, as a driver, 4 years ago. I retired 11 years ago from a manufacturing firm. I have state military license plates and some do acknowledge.
Yes, many Veterans are in dire need, and we need to acknowledge them every time we see them. As one mentioned, take one out to eat that maybe homeless, for example. I have heard MANY stories/experiences.
