Their thanks comes in the form of money.

But even if they are about freedom, soldiering is still a job and they are still doing it for money. My brother-in-law is a veteran and HATES when every random soldier is referred to as a "hero" or "patriot". As he said: "There is definately heros and there is definately patriots.

My old roommate said "Thank you for your service," to the mailman one time 7 years ago, and I still laugh when I think about it.

Literally every time I ride the bus. I also thank the guy who drives the shuttle from the satellite parking lot to my job.

They get paid.

Exactly, so why do people thank people in the armed forces for their service?

Where do you live that they don't spend 7/8ths of their time jerking each other off?

1. It was just a joke

2. You have to admit, at least in California it takes them wayyyyy longer to build a 2 lane road than it should (2 lanes 2 miles took 4 years of "constant" work)
