Ahead of myself - February 2012
I got a little ahead of myself. In Early February Kevin and I received a very special invitation, to a special place, for a very special reason.
We had the extreme pleaseure of meeting the President, First Lady, Vice President and Secretary of Defense of the United States of America.
Leon Ponetta, Secretary of Defense
Vice President Joe Biden
It was very cool, but not quite as cool as getting to hang out with some really great friends in North Carolina the week before the event. It really gave us the opportunity to decompress before the high stress trip to D.C.
The boys went and looked at lots of airplanes and projects, and Karen and I did some antiquing.
