President honored troops returning from Iraq at Fort Bragg
On Wednesday, Dec. 14th, President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama traveled to Ft. Bragg where they delivered remarks to troops. As the country ends America’s war in Iraq this month, the President wanted to speak directly to the troops at Ft. Bragg and to members of the Armed Forces and their families everywhere. The President spoke about the enormous sacrifices and achievements of the brave Americans who served in the Iraq War, and he spoke about the extraordinary milestone of bringing the war in Iraq to an end. Like many other military installations across this nation, during the war in Iraq, service members from Ft. Bragg—and their families—have provided remarkable service to the country through their deployments to Iraq.
