So for a long time I did not know what to say when someone said this to me. But finally I have the best thing to say that makes complete sense...

With a smile I say, "Thank YOU for paying your taxes"

Its comical and they always laugh, but also very true at the same time. I am a people person and this has opened so many door of opportunity for me. Feel free to use it and post your comments on what you normally say.

No matter how I am feeling at the time, I immediately light up, shake their hand and say thank you for your support. If I have a free second, I will talk to them for a bit. I do this because of one event. When I was returning from R&R going back to Iraq, the entire group was leaving Atlanta Airport. I heard a message across the speaker system say that this group is going back to Iraq. The entire airport stopped and all I could hear were claps and whistles. I have never been so taken aback by the support from our country.

Here is how I respond.

I always shake their hand with a big smile and say:

"Yes sir/ma'am. I am happy to serve. Have a Blessed Day!"
