Whoops! Sorry, but I missed Rick’s post on this same story a couple posts down.
Andrew Malcolm at the LA Times’ Top of the Ticket brings us this great story tonight that Former President Bush and First Lady Laura Bush made a surprise visit to the Dallas-Fort Worth USO to thank the troops.
Former President George W. Bush and his wife Laura made a surprise visit to U.S. troops this afternoon.
They showed up unannounced at the USO in the Dallas-Fort Worth airport. There they mingled with the soldiers, thanked them, chatted and posed for photos as proof of the unexpected encounter for folks back home.
The Dallas USO posted the pictures on its Facebook page and they are priceless. I particularly love the look of sheer surprise and, might I say, joy on the faces of the troops as they meet the former Commander in Chief.
And while you’re at the D-FW USO’s page, be sure to read the comments at the individual photos. The American people truly miss President Bush and the class and grace he brought to the presidency.
