Grand Prairie Granny Gets Around
Best lead ever to appear in an Army News Service story: "Linda Tinnerman, 66, of Grand Prairie, Texas, estimates she has kissed tens of thousands of young military men and women in the past few years. But the kisses she planted on 151 troops today were extra special."
If you hadn't guessed by now, Tinnerman's part of Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport's "Welcome Home a Hero" program, which greets soldiers on R&R from Iraq and Afghanistan. And a few days ago, it welcomed its half-millionth soldier to come through DFW. With a big ol' smooch. --Robert Wilonsky
