    "Thank you for your appreciation" is generally a safe bet in my experience

    I always say "on behalf of the Army, thank you for your support." It impresses a lot of people and makes us look like professional and dutiful servants of our country.

    Or as my teenage son said to his older midshipmen sister after someone thanked her as they passed her in the parking lot "you haven't done anything yet" :).
