Cute...also humanizes the whole thing. Sometimes we Do forget that the people protecting us are the people we see everyday...like the kid that lives next door or an neighbor that lives across the street. Everyday people who...like us..wear boxers and can't separate our whites from our colors.
That reminds me of a story I heard of my dad. When he was in Vietnam, he would sleep naked because it was so hot and muggy. Shoots were fired one night and everybody had to run. He ran holding his junk in his helmet. They never let him live that one down.
