Blue Star Family Members Hear from President Obama

President Obama

BSF member Claire sent this photo from her husband, a marine pilot, taken just before President Obama left Andrews today for Camp LeJeune, North Carolina, where Obama announced that the bulk of U.S. troops in Iraq will be withdrawn by August 31,  2010, and the remaining troops by the end of 2011.  While her husband took the photo, Claire waited at LeJeune to hear President Obama speak.

I’m sure that reading the words that President Obama addressed to Marines and military family members can’t compare to actually being there to hear, “Today I’ve come to speak to you about how the war in Iraq will end.”  Luckily, several Blue Star Family members were there for the President’s speech and will update us on the blog soon.

In the meantime, you can find a transcript of the President’s speech here.
