Why is it that small towns seem to respect their veterans more than larger towns?

Because in small towns people actually care about their neighbors and their country ... in large towns people actually "think" they're special and more important than anyone else! They're soooo busy with their social activities and more concerned about who is bangin who ... UGH!! Look at New York City - what a cesspool!

It could very well be that these people know the men and women returning home. If they do not know the vets themselves, then they know their Aunts or Uncles or other family members.

I cannot believe that some vets were even spit upon when they returned from VietNam. I was very lucky to return to my (very small) hometown and was welcomed with open arms from everyone.

I wish that I had never left that little town.

The residents of Fairfield County are some of the best around. And, they love and respect the military, active duty, Reserve, Guard, and retired.
