Headline: Royal Navy girl who fought in Afghanistan told to cover up uniform on Virgin flight in case it offended other passengers (HT: Instapundit)

Maybe Virgin doesn't want to offend the traitors, Commies and jihadis among its passengers.

The Daily Mail piece concludes with a comparison of how Americans treat behave toward troops with how Brits behave theirs. The way our serving military, draftees in many cases, were treated during the Vietnam conflict is a national disgrace. Just possibly we've learned from it. (Travesties do occur in America, but if they come to light, the blowback of public anger against the responsible organization apparently is greater than in the UK.)
