Thank you for writing this! My father retired in that building in 1993 and US Strategic Command was my last duty assignment. Though it was almost 10 years ago, your words ring true.

Thanks for writing this. I posted it on Facebook page. As an Army wife, I appreciate your observations. Military families make significant sacrifices, and it nice to to see appreciation and acknowledgement from the non-military world.

I love you work, btw!

Thanks for posting this. I'd have said instinctively my expectation would be different. Not because of how the people feel about service or other people, but about the constraints of the environment and adherance to rules. Humanness previals in fact it's to use your own workds the "why" most people join based on what you've written and how others have responded.
Thanks for allowing me see this properly and differently.

Having been in the military I can say that Simon is right. Hugs are more plentiful in the military than in civilian life. The only exception is bikers. They hug a lot too. Also a lot of ex-military in biker clubs.

I guess when you think your the tough, honorable and are comfortable within your own skin you can show affection.

You've captured both the military members' dedication to mission and the heart behind it. It's what I miss most now that I'm no longer in uniform.
