I work part-time in the retail business and when an athlete, a firefighter or a military serviceperson engages in conversation, the first thing I notice is their use of the word “sir” in addresses and inquiries.
The second thing I notice is their patience in listening and it can be followed with a rephrase or detailed interpretation ... but most of all coming through is the respect they give others.
The disciplined work of our country’s coaches and commanders needs a day all its own.
