I wouldn't worry about it, unless maybe they are paying for it. 

I think of it this way: if it benefited my place of work to fire me, would they do it?  The answer, in pretty much every area I've worked in (private company, state government, academia, etc) is YES.  If they felt they needed to get rid of me for some reason, they would. 

Therefore, you should operate under the same set of rules in that you make the decision that best suits your needs, not theirs.  Unless you entered into some kind of agreement that you'd stay for x amount of time or something.  Basically, avoid burning bridges, but also... fuck 'em.  

This about covers it. 99% of companies have zero loyalty to their employees so I wouldn't feel any  to them.

Maybe it's just my personality, but I lean towards feeling like I need to give back to some extent.  Am I a fool?  

Don't forget that you are giving back by doing your job. It's not as if your company is paying you as a personal favour.
