Uniforms

I noticed this some time ago, but with my sister coming in from Birmingham this weekend (she's stationed there right now), it brought it back. Anyway, a great way to cause commotion and impress most kids in an elementary school.. have a soldier show up in uniform. Middle of lunch works great as you get the best exposure. :) It's amazing (funny, cute, etc..) the reactions you get from the school kids when someone's dad shows up (in camos or other uniform) to have lunch with them. I keep waiting for the group to simply stand and encircle said person with hands reaching out to touch. Of course, the child who's parent (or family member) it is, gets to stand proudly at their side saying "he/she's MINE". :)
