Yep. You even have the right to think you're better than other people, and that you deserve several parades a year.

And constant praise during televised sporting events.

What? You forgot to publicly thank Jeebus for all the veterans people try to ignore when the veterans in question are trying to get help or VA benefits.
Many years ago, when I was still bitter about Vietnam, I always went to the Memorial Day and Veterans Day rites in my home town, wearing a fatigue shirt with my ribbons and such. The bitterness wore off about twenty years ago, and I stopped wearing the parts of a uniform to the ceremonies. I blew off both events this year, because callouts to Jeebus for the dead were probably just going to get me riled up all over again.
