This story by Blackfive is VERY cool. Some milblogs (listed here) met President Bush in the Roosevelt room of the White House yesterday.

The President was very intelligent, razor sharp, warm, focused, emotional (especially about his dad), and genuine. Even more so than this cynical Chicago Boy expected. I was overwhelmed by the sincerity – it wasn’t staged.

The one thing that he made sure was accomplished in the hour he spent with us was to say “Thanks.”

It made four years of slugging away at telling the truth, four years of having my life and my family threatened, four years of listening to lies go unanswered about my brothers and sisters in combat (except by us), four years of spending valuable time and money in defense of something that should not need my presence…ah, you get the idea.

For an hour today, it made it all worth it. He just wanted to say “Thanks, friend.”

Read the link and go back when he has all his thoughts together.
I do love our President. And his meeting with these folks is one very big reason why.
