I went to the airport last Wednesday night to pick-up my in-laws after their Winter vacation. When we got there, the folks had already cleared the security gate at the Terminal and the bags were coming off the conveyor belt. We were inside the airport 15 minutes -- 20 minutes tops.
Anyway, the place was crawling with military personnel, all going to, or coming from, someplace very sandy. While I was at the airport, I saw three different civilians walk up to three different groups of military and thank them for their service.
