The Obamas and Kruschkas Hung Out Together Last Friday 7/24/2009

Marine Barracks Photos

Arthur and I had tickets for the Friday Evening Parade at the Marine Barracks in Washington, DC last Friday - they were given to us by our Congressman, Gerry Connolly.

We parked at the Navy Yard and rode the shuttle to the Marine Barracks at 8th and I SE.  As we left the bus we noticed a line of black SUVs lined up down the street and dozens of guys in dark suits wearing sunglasses all over the place.  The street was also loaded with police cars and all the other emergency equipment you expect to see at a major event.

The trip through security was, to say the least, thorough  We suspected the President was the reason for all the effort, but didn't know for certain until we were handed a program with an insert - it's below.

This was the first military event the President attended since he assumed the presidency in January.

Prewident Obama Announcement

Also, Arthur "attempted" to film the event with his new equipment - it is obvious he has a lot more studying to do.  However, we will never forget the excitement of the crowd - it has nothing to do with politics.  We went to see Marines and got to see President Obama as well.

Karen I am aware your reports on Woodbridge are an integral part of your market strategy to be current on many facts throughout Prince William County. The obvious goal is to provide your clients with the very best possible representation and blog posting is an excellent method and may include posts about other interesting locations in our area
