Former President George W. Bush and his wife, Laura, made a surprise visit to U.S. troops this afternoon.
They showed up at the USO in the Dallas-Fort Worth airport. There they mingled with the returning soldiers, thanked them, chatted and posed for photos as proof of the unexpected encounter for folks back home.
The USO just posted an assortment of the photos on its Facebook page, which quickly drew a growing list of appreciative comments.
‘What an AWESOME moment,’ Robert Rowe wrote. ‘If anyone can’t see the President and First Lady’s love for our nations troops, they must be dead or blind. May God Bless them ALL !’ Richard Cruz wrote: ‘The look on that kid’s face says it all....’
And Shirley Lovely Fry added: ‘A President and First Lady who love their country and their country’s military.’
