When Leadership was Selfless

Here's a story that will make you reach for your Troglopundit "Miss me Yet" automotivator and a handkerchief as we are given a glimpse into the bygone days when Presidents and First Ladies made us proud.  Former President George W. Bush and Laura Bush made a surprise visit troops arriving home from Afghanistan and Iraq at the USO in the Dallas-Fort Worth airport yesterday.   President Bush chatted and mingled with each of the returning soldiers as he thanked them for their service to the country.  

Photos capturing the surprise and delight of the returning soldiers have been posted on Facebook so be sure to see them all there.  There is a growing list of comments on each of the photos as well as the album itself that are wonderful too.  Here are just a few:
Constance Pagan I have always liked that Man!!!!! And YES I MISS HIM!!!!!!!!!!!!
 Kerri Houston Toloczko God bless him - he still cares loves the troops far more than he cares about the cameras. His love and appreciation for our heroes shows all over his face.

There is a warmth and generosity about President George and First Lady Laura Bush which ALWAYS comes through in all circumstances. I will NEVER forget the day he borrowed the bullhorn from the fireman to LEAD AMERICA as long as I live. Even in retirement, President Bush and First Lady Laura give us examples of what LEADERSHIP is ... selfLESSness and Gratitude are it's hallmarks.

From the bottom of my heart I thank President and Mrs Bush ... our nation's men and women at arms and the USO for your continuing service to our country.
 Oh and the pictures are pretty great too:
