Jenkins Stated: “I would have loved to have been at the announcement but as a supporter of military men and women around the world, it was very important to me that I keep my word and be in Afghanistan to entertain the troops. However, due to technical problems with the plane, I was unable to make it there this time… but this will not stop me from going again in the future!”
Jenkins later using her twitter account stated that it was her misfortune missing both the major event, but included that she cannot be kept waiting from beginning training for Dancing with the Stars.
