    Default NFL Cheerleader turned soldier

    Interesting article here:

    http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nfl-sh...1405--nfl.html

    On Sunday night, the Philadelphia Eagles will honor one of their own, a former cheerleader who has served two tours in Afghanistan as an Army intelligence officer.

    Washburn, now a 1st lieutenant based out of Fort Stewart, Ga., served as part of a Cultural Support Team designed to attach women to existing special ops units with the express purpose of relating more effectively to local women.

    Among her more notable achievements, Washburn helped deliver a baby in a snowstorm. She indicated that her awards included the Bronze Star Medal, an Army Commendation Medal, a Combat Action Badge, an Airborne Badge and an Air Assault Badge.
    I'm always impressed and appreciative of all the young people today who still willingly join our military, knowing full well that they are likely headed over into combat zones. Great Americans all.

    Good on her!

    Why tiptoe through life only to arrive safely at deaths door?

    I'd hit that, even if she is an officer.
