England football star David Beckham said "he was 'humbled' by the bravery of British troops on a surprise visit to Afghanistan," reports the UK Telegraph.
According to the Telegraph, Beckham said:
"I have nothing but admiration for these young men and women and it makes me very proud to be British.
"I've wanted to visit Afghanistan for a long time and I hope that in some small way it helps remind everyone at home what an amazing job they are doing out here in very difficult conditions. I feel very humble."
His comments, and a photo of him testing a heavy machine gun, place him in stark contrast to "Hanoi Jane" Fonda, who was photographed posing happily on a Communist anti-aircraft gun used to down U.S. pilots during the Vietnam War.
