    Thank You to our troops for all they do and have done. And Thank You to our President for all he do and have done. I appreciate you both. May God continue to bless our troops and our President.

    He is the first President that I remember who has been so attentive to our Armed Forces and giving them the respect they deserve. God bless them
    all along with our President, family and the SS agents.

      Absolutely Phoenix. He and the First lady not only talk the talk, but they walk the walk. They always back up their words with action and caring. They respect our men and women in uniform and fight for them in all arenas every day and night. To all our men and women in uniform who know the real cost of war ( unlike repubs and the PL) and the cost of leaving a war in a careless manner, we thank them for their service and I hope they know that the POTUS and FLOTUS will always always have their backs.

    I see huge differences – transformative, really, on the faces of the Servicemen and Women as they attend to BHO ‘s words as compared with those of Bush.

    He said his main purpose coming there was to shake hands and say thank you for their service and he promptly after speaking, did just that. He went to each person, looked them in the eye, shook their hands got their name and said a few words with each solider. Then he called Pete and arranged group photos as he went along. He is always thinking of others. Such a warm and compassionate President! BTW – Chipsticks, you are on a roll today keeping up with FLOTUS and POTUS! 😀
