i was very fortunate and was able to meet a WWII vet that lived next to my aunt and uncle. the old man was 92 and still cut his grass in 90+ heat. I went over there and talked to him a few times and one day i mentioned i was in the service and he thanked me for serving. i was taken aback and the only thing i could say was no thank you sir, we go through absolutely nothing compared to what you went through. I was also fortunate enough to be part of the 101st. Which most of you might not know is home to the Currahee brigade, which has the 506th in it is deactivating again.
