Anderson Honored By Air Force

Richard Dean Anderson, star and executive producer of SCI FI's
original series Stargate SG-1, will be recognized at the Air Force
Association's 57th Annual Air Force Anniversary Dinner in Washington,
D.C., on Tuesday, Sept. 14, the Air Force announced. The service's
chief of staff, Gen. John P. Jumper, who made a cameo appearance in
the seventh season finale of Stargate SG-1, will be on hand to
participate in the special recognition.

The Air Force Association is an independent, nonprofit, civilian
organization promoting public understanding of aerospace power and
the role it plays in national security. Anderson and Stargate SG-1
will be recognized for the show's continuous positive depiction of
the Air Force. In addition to receiving the award, Anderson will tour
the Pentagon and visit with wounded troops at Walter Reed Hospital,
the Air Force said. Stargate SG-1, currently in its eighth season,
airs Fridays at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

Not surprising really. SG1 portrays the Air Force in a very positive manner :)

I think it's wonderful.

And I'm glad he's going to be visiting Walter Reed (that's where many of the seriously injured soldiers from Iraq are I believe). There must be a few Stargate or even McGyver fans there. :)

However, the annoying part for me is I know someone who works at Walter Reed... but he was in meetings all day that day. I'm hoping he can get his hands on a newspaper for me.
