Having been in the position of those fellas deploying, Thank you... While picking up a check or buying a beer seems like the nice thing to do to honor those in uniform, I can tell you this.. I remember EVERY gesture like that over my career - most happened in the last 8 years too.

Those fellas will not forget you and what you did for them.

Remember this too... Those guys leaving got the opportunity to have an early Christmas with their Families, but the guys they are replacing haven't seen their families in a long time and they can't wait to get home and start their Christmas and hear about Thanksgiving!
