I can't believe I am reading this from another military wife. The businesses are more than gracious to provide discounts for our soldiers stationed in El Paso, most of the time without even having to ask (the haircut gives you away and I was stationed in El Paso with my husband). Businesses give military and discounts to other professions because they respect the job they are doing. These businasses do not provide the extras because they HAVE to, but because they WANT to. Be thankful for what you are getting, and except the kindness with a smile and graciousness befitting a military spouse. Hopefully this does not ruin the discounts for others because you do not feel you were given enough. Your husband has my respect for what he is doing, you Shirly do not.
