Since Bill was getting a little antsy...
The lot of us in front of the White House. I think we were still in shock over the whole thing at this point.
Secretary of Defense, Robert Gates. He was accosted by a woman who got lost on her way to the Kentucky Derby. Either that or she was a Code Pinko spy. Not sure which. She definitely stood out though. Actually, the hat was lovely - just unique.
Ladies and gentlemen, the President of the United States. This is, unfortunately, as close to him as I was able to get. Had I been more aggressive, I might have been able to shake his hand but that's ok - just being there was more than enough for me.
General Cody, Vice Chief of Staff of the Army. Former 160th commander, Master Aviator (told me to have MacGyver call him when he hits 5,000 hours). Impressive man. I think, in many ways, I was more excited to meet him than to meet the President. Can you tell I'm a fan?
The Washington Monument from the South Lawn. I think the only regret I had about this trip was the lack of time I had. I do so wish I had the time to tour D.C. properly. I went my senior year in high school and even THAT week wasn't enough time to see everything I wanted to see. I would have liked to have been able to visit Arlington National Cemetery and some friends that are buried there. I would have loved to have been able to get over to the Smithsonian and visit my brother. I would have loved to have seen the WWII memorial for the first time, in addition to seeing all of the other monuments I've seen before.
