Great-Grandmother Volunteers For Duty In Iraq

Jean over at GrandmaJeansOpinions ("Old. Opinionated. And right. What more do you need to know!") posts this story:
A 72-year-old great-grandmother is preparing for deployment to the war zone in Iraq and will become one of the oldest Department of Defense civilian workers in the war zone.
'I volunteered,' said Lena Haddix of Lawton, who has five children, eight grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. 'I wanted to do something for the country, because I was always left behind taking care of the children.'

She raised five kids and thinks she hasn't done something for the country?
