    Eh, this type of thing has been posted probably a bajillion times. Ive either never gotten anything like those things said, or I just chaulk it up to the person not knowing whats up. Either ignore it and walk away, or try to educate them. I prefer the ingore and walk away.

    I just figured some of the new wives/girlfriends on here would get a kick out of it ;-) I heard this a pretty long time ago- the personal opinions to each one get kind of old, but overall it's pretty true stuff.

    These really bother me. I know there's other stuff like this posted in the Military Pride section, I just wish so much of "military pride" wasn't based on tearing other people down.

    for some it's true, but I've personally never heard this...and I would only have one response for people who say stuff like that to you. Either STFU or just walk away

    - it's funny, half the time people are complaining that no one acknowledges their SO's service (or recognizes how special they are by extension) and the other half it's complaining that they say/ask the wrong thing.
