I thank that person whoever she/he is.

I'm proud of my Navy service. It was a risk I took voluntarily and a
financial sacrifice I made voluntarily because I love the USA. Nobody
came after me to do me harm.
I wasn't complaining about the note(it was actually a public forum
post, not a private note)
You should have seen it yourself. I'm surprised you didn't jump in and
join them in chastising me.
(as you are doing now)

You're wasting your time. The only people whose disapproval I care
about are my Sister and my two deceased parents. The rest of the world
can call me whatever they like and it will bounce right off.

Then why do you argue so much and so energetically when people argue
with you. You must care some. There's nothing wrong with that.

Even if, for the sake of argument, you don't care, that doesn't mean
she is wasting her time. You and she, and I, are probably not the
only people reading.
