But lack of patriotism aside, I have to admit that when I saw the video that the Australian Chief of Army released in response to the Army sex scandal that's being investigated at the moment, I puffed up a bit with pride [link].
Dude, as a woman and an Australian citizen, I want to say thank you. You could have kept silent, pleading ongoing legal proceedings were prohibiting you from making a statement, but you stood up and said exactly what needed to be said. And you were totally bad ass while doing it!
You're awesome, and you make me proud to belong to a country where people will still choose to do what's right over what will cover their asses.
