US Military Medicine Gets a New Cadet - Meet Sergeant Elmo

Elmo, the fire engine red Sesame Street Muppet, will make a special guest appearance with Army Brig. Gen. Loree Sutton, director of the Defense Centers of Excellence for Psychological Health and Traumatic Brain Injury, at a press conference in Philadelphia next week. She will unveil how Elmo and his pals can help kids deal with the stress of military deployments.

This is part of a continuing outreach project with the Muppets that Sesame Street and the Defense Department kicked off in 2006, using familiar characters to help children in military families deal with tough challenges posed by both deployment and a parent's return home.

Well tickle me happy (couldn't help myself).
