Secretary of Defense Robert M. Gates
Late this week I was invited to a VIP Town Hall Meeting, VIP unnamed. I got there early ... with my key to the car, phone, and ID ONLY. And as per normal town hall meetings with VIP's we waited... They actually had a nice little spread of tea, water, coffee and cookies. In a very comfortable room with comfortable chairs. (the food and the comfortable room and chairs are not normal)
When I get the picture his staff took of the two of us (in a line 10 seconds coin and picture taken, times 150 other spouses) I will post it. The picture of him is from my phone camera so... well that is the best I could get.
He visited us in honor of Military Spouse Appreciation day which was yesterday. We each got a coin and rose, after his speech of about 10 minutes and about 30 minutes of Q & A.
Now I know anyone who believes like me believes I should have been praying for him in the first place. OK you are right. And now it will be much easier to do just that.
