Always made me ridiculously embarrassed when folks used to 'thank' me in public but I second the first comment: Thank you for the thank you's.
(I'm prior service Air Force and Army National Guard. Oh, so...like, my first REAL-LIFE formation with my 'platoon'? The soldiers, upon learning that I am prior svc AF and a new to the Army said to me, "You were in the Air Force?! Oh - you must be one of those crazy a..s Air Force people..." LOL Nah, is it a different world? Like night and day...considering the fact that I was an Air Force 'MEDIC'. LOL BUT...it was the whole 'humanitarian/first responder/disaster response' aspect of the National Guard that drew me in, truthfully. I just LOVE stuff like that.)
