Former President Bush welcomes soldiers home in surprise visit to airport

Watch this heartwarming and inspirational video of President Bush welcoming home our military heroes

August 18, 2010

As 145 soldiers returning from Iraq and Afghanistan walked through the double doors in Terminal D at DFW Airport last week for two weeks of R&R, they were greeted not only by their families, but by former president George Bush and his wife Laura.

AFA's long-time friend, Bert Brady, who helps coordinate the welcome home project to our troops coming home for furlough at Dallas Fort Worth airport sent us an amazing video of President Bush welcoming the troops.

It is refreshing to see how pro-American and patriotic our former Commander-in-Chief is.

Please take a moment to watch this heartwarming and inspirational video of President Bush welcoming home our military heroes.

Brady said about 40 people, among them retirees and veterans, show up almost daily to help welcome home soldiers with ovations as they depart customs and enter the main terminal. More than 750,000 service members have been welcomed as part of the program, he said, and some purposely ask to reroute their return to the U.S. so they can come through DFW.

TAKE ACTION 

Help us send 100,000 "Thank You!" messages to former President George Bush for his patriotism and support of our military!  Let's let him know we are grateful for his continued leadership. 

Please remember to keep our troops and their families in your prayers.
