President Bush To Visit Fort Bragg

Posted June 28, 2006

— President George W. Bush is expected to spend at least part of the Fourth of July with soldiers at Fort Bragg.

Details about Bush's visit, however, were not immediately known and had not yet been confirmed by the White House.

Tuesday's visit will mark the fourth visit by the president in the past year. Last June, he visited Fort Bragg, where he addressed the nation during a prime-time address on Iraq.

Two weeks later, the president visited Gaston County, where he toured a textile plant and made a speech at Gaston College in support for a Central American trade agreement.

And in April, he was in Charlotte where he delivered a speech defending the Iraq war, high gas prices, the federal deficit and anti-terrorism measures.
