That's so "out of character" for her.

Up until about 1991 (Gulf 1) the military was treated by the general population as a piece of crap. At least in the UK/Europe and I assume it was similar over here. After 1991 when the military started deploying into combat zones on a more frequent basis, started coming home in bags and on stretchers, and especially after 911 the mood changed and a little respect and gratitude emerged. I know I am biased and a little love doesn't make up for the decades of disdain, but it's nice to see. Plus the guys who have been on total deployment for the last decade deserve it.

well stated - agree.
