    They should have addressed the retraction to "Karen".

    I understand the distinction folks are trying to bring attention to. Memorial Day being a time set aside for solemn remembrance of those killed in action (KIA), fighting for this country. So, to wish someone a “happy” Memorial Day seems at least, a poor choice of words.

    However, I’m not automatically given over to assume ‘malice intent’ on the part of someone’s poor word choices. I fully understand their intent, and while it may also make me feel somewhat uncomfortable as a veteran [to be “thanked”], I’m not likely to chastise them over it. Generally, I would not consider an apology to be in order but would take the opportunity to {tactfully} explain the difference between Memorial Day and Veterans Day. As has been said, “no harm, no foul”.

    When I go out I always wear my Army Veteran hat. Most people tell me "thanks for your service". I was even told that today. But to me and all of my friends know what memorial day represents. I have a very good friend, from high school, who was KIA after only 12 days in Nam. I would rather some say " thanks for your service" instead what we were called when we returned from Nam. Army 67 - 69.

    It always takes me back when someone says thank you for your service. I don't know why it bothers me. What does bother me is that only 3% of our population has ever served. That really bothers me.

    Every time I hear TYFYS, I want to make them watch this.



    And then remember these types of thoughts went through my mind more then once when living in post housing, because I sure as shit wasn’t going to have to answer to my commander for the guy next door.

    I got those today but had to go back after getting the second one to see what they sent earlier.
    Once I saw it I was just like "oh, ok. Yeah, I get that" and that was it. Back to my day.

    I didn't see anything worth causing a big fuss over, and I don't feel the apology was really that necessary. People make mistakes, and there was no malice intended. At most, this should just be seen as a learning experience.

    There is never a bad time to thank a Vet for their service. Not even memorial day.

    I didn't notice it until they sent the apology email pointing it out.
