This is What a Veteran Looks Like

Every Veterans Day it occurs to me that I have zero items in my wardrobe that reflect anything military, former military, Veteran status, etc. I am not your average gun-toting, American-flag wearing former US Army Soldier. 

So this year I've decided to do something a little different. I designed a t-shirt for those of you who don't "look" like the stereotypical military personnel or Veterans. It's as if the general population forgets that Veterans come in all different shapes, colors and genders. 

This is what happens every year ... my hubbs and I enjoy a free meal at one of the many places offering free meals to Veterans and the waitress or waiter immediately thanks him for his service. Me? I just disappear into the background. I speak up or he will speak up and tell them I served too. And, they always say something like, "Oh!" and then follow it with something like, "Thanks for your service." But, after being dismissed based on my gender, my looks or whatever preconceived notions they have about WHO serves in the military, it's like their "Oh, thanks to you, too" is too little too late.

The t-shirt design captures my annoyance and general statement about who Veterans are and this way you don't have to explain you are a Veteran. Just point to the shirt and order your free meal. LOL 


The t-shirt reads "This is what a Veteran looks like. Try not to look so surprised."
