Tasha knew (from the guard) that Alice was coming to see her. So, Tasha arranged for a group of lesbian pilots to take her and Alice for a helicopter ride. Tasha and Alice can be affectionate w/ each other w/o worrying about Don’t-Ask-Don’t-Tell. Note that Tasha arranged for the ride BEFORE Alice explained. 😉
I thought I saw “U.S. Army” on her uniform.” I know very little about the National Guards. So, I looked it up after I commented, and found out that there’s the “Army National Guard” and the “Air National Guard”. Then, I went to the TLW’s official site and Tasha’s character notes state that she’s in the Army National Guard.
