Obama in Afghanistan.......a soldiers view.

(This is a guy that use to be in my ward - so someone I know personally. He is the father of six and currently serving in Afghanistan . This is his take of Senator Obama visit to "the troops". Kind of a different take that what you will see on the news. Make of it what you will. ~ Sheri)

Hello everyone,
As you know I am not a very political person. I just wanted to pass
along that Senator Obama came to Bagram Afghanistan for about an hour
on his visit to "The War Zone". I wanted to share with you what
happened. He got off the plane and got into a bullet proof vehicle,
got to the area to meet with the Major General (2 Star) who is the
commander here at Bagram. As the Soldiers where lined up to shake his
hand he blew them off and didn't say a word as he went into the
conference room to meet the General. As he finished, the vehicles
took him to the ClamShell (pretty much a big top tent that military
personnel can play basketball or work out in with weights) so he
could take his publicity pictures playing basketball. He again
shunned the opportunity to talk to Soldiers to thank them for their
service. So really he was just here to make a showing for the
American's back home that he is their candidate for President. I
think that if you are going to make an effort to come all the way
over here you would thank those that are providing the freedom that
they are providing for you. I swear we got more thanks from the NBA
Basketball Players or the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders than from one of
the Senators, who wants to be the President of the United States . I
just don't understand how anyone would want him to be our
Commander-and-Chief. It was almost that he was scared to be around
those that provide the freedom for him and our great country.
If this is blunt and to the point I am sorry but I wanted you all
to know what kind of caliber of person he really is. What you see in
the news is all fake.

In service,
