Here's a nice story about Redskin phenom RGIII, who was an army kid, but soooo not a brat.

RGIII: Redskins star has become a role model for military kids
Petula Dvorak, The Washington Post

If RGIII set foot inside Meade Senior High School, he’d cause a stampede among the students.

Not because he’s the hottest football player around, one whose gear is already being collected for the Pro Football Hall of Fame and who gets props from John Madden, Donald Trump and Dale Earnhardt Jr. all in the same news cycle.

It’s because he’s one of them. Robert Griffin III grew up in the military, just like many of them are doing.
