Inappropriate/unnecessary Commercial Content?

I was just watching the evening news and it went to commercial. One of 'em was for some dinky electronics shop. It did the usual we have this and that and everything you will ever need, but then after it showed the employees together they added something at the end which made me raise an eyebrow. They said something like we'd like to thank our police and servicemen for fighting against terrorism. While it's probably a nice gesture and all, I don't think it had any place being put in the commercial, but you be the judge. Were they out of line? I mean, doesn't that border on associating their business with a certain political stance?

I'll be damned if I can remember the shop's name though. If I do, I won't be going there for stuff I need.

Sorry about the other post. I actually edited it minutes after posting to correct that, but the edit didn't stick. That's the second edit that has refused to stick this week.
