President Obama spoke at the American Legion Convention this past Tuesday in Charlotte, NC. We were invited to attend the event by The White House thanks to the recommendation of Congressman Robert Pittenger. The Congressman’s office has taken the lead in helping dad push forward on his project. This was a great day for Veterans because new initiatives were outlined to fix some of the VA problems. It is not enough but it is a start. Dad got the chance to meet the President and take his picture with him. We hope to get an invitation to return back to the White House for another meeting about the Veterans Petition soon.
