Remember when the CIC respected those in uniform?

GW and Laura surprised troops arriving home at the Dallas/Fort Worth USO. 

A spokesman for Bush, David Sherzer, said they were “honored” to take part in the welcome. “President Bush often says that he doesn’t miss much about being the President, but he does miss being the Commander in Chief of an incredible group of men and women”, he said.

We miss you, too.

 “It was a remarkable, incredible feeling for [the soldiers], seeing the former commander in chief taking time to greet them,” McAfee said.

Bush handed each of the service members his commander-in-chief coin and posed for pictures for everyone. Photos from the event showed the surprise on the faces of many of the troops.

“For the first time in my life, I was star struck,” McAfee said. “He obviously still loves the military.”

I love the look on this soldier's face!
