A Veteran's Day to remember!

WOW! It was Veteran's Day, the 60th Anniversary of the Korean War and the begining of the G20 Summit here in Seoul, Korea. Steve had a front row seat for President Obama's speech and got to shake his hand. Kelley, our Commandar's wife...she just moved here 5 days after we did...newlyweds. Now she may organize our Bunco games, plan dinners and loves to bake but she also has White House connections. She was working in the White House up until her move here to Korea and becoming one of the wives. So she is the one who got all our husbands these great seats on the front row.

Steve took this picture during the speech.
The kids and I went with our neighbors to see the motorcade. So cool!

When all the excitement ended and the President of the United States drove off, we walked home.

Oh my goodness!! I see Steve right up there in front!! What a great experience for all of you...when we saw Bush in Great Falls, the motorcade was my favorite part!

I am so excited. I voted for Obama and I care for him deeply. I wish the rest of the US did. Uncle Vic served in the Korean War after he got home from WWII. That was when Mark was born. 60 years ago. Take Care I am thinking about all of you. ON
