There are dozens of websites, Facebook Groups, forums and other outlets for the general public to express their gratitude to members of the Armed Forces. However, i would like to start a thread thanking the public for their support to us. I know that the people that we are referring to will probably never read these posts, but it would be nice to know that somewhere there is a small piece of the internet devoted to these folks. So my starters: First of all I'd like to thank every civilian who attended todays services. Those who put up with the cold, wind and rain; even though they have no direct connections to HMF. They were solemn and respectful, and made me proud to be a British Serviceman. Thank You. Also, to the bus driver who this evening told me there would be no fare for my trip to the station as I was in uniform. Thank You To the little old lady who, even though she didn't know me from Adam, talked to me and wished me well on the bus trip. Then finished off by telling me that every man and woman in uniform is a hero. Thank You. This thread is for you. PS Can we keep all comments civil and polite. This doesn't need to turn into a civvy-bashing thread. Thanks.
