I must admit. I felt like I never needed a discount or a special thank you for my service. I seldom took advantage of these discounts. However, after speaking with a good number of comrades, I soon realized that these businesses are offering this to us because they truly want to thank us for what we have done. It is an offer of kindness from them to us, and by graciously accepting, we are letting them know we appreciate them as well. So, that being said, take a good look at the list and treat yourself!
