President, first lady to visit Fort Bragg
Posted December 8, 2011
Fort Bragg, N.C. — President Barack Obama has two trips planned in the next week with one shared purpose – to visit with members of the armed forces.
On Saturday, the president and Vice President Joe Biden will be in attendance at the Army-Navy football game. The game, the 112th meeting between the service academies, kicks off at 2:30 p.m. on WRAL-TV.
Next Wednesday, the president and First Lady Michelle Obama will travel to Ft. Bragg where they thank the troops there for their sacrifices and achievements over 10 years of war in Afghanistan and Iraq.
All U.S. troops will leave Iraq by the end of the year. Ahead of that milestone, the White House says Obama wants to speak directly to troops and their families.
