I have a very good friend named Ben who graduated from the Air Force Academy last week and he gave me and my family tickets to attend.  It was an incredible honor to see him be commissioned and see the President in person.  He also presented me and my family with an Air Force Academy Sword as a gift.  I was his pastor while he attended the college the last year and a half.  We were overwhelmed.

Here they are marching in.  Ben is in there somewhere.



The Sword he gave us


HAIL TO THE CHIEF!!!


Hugged by the BIG GUY




Can you imagine the thrill?



The Moment!



Here he is after the commissioning with me and my family



Bush personally saluted and greeted everyone of the 1012 graduates that day.

Say what you want about Bush's domestic policy but the man knows how to inspire and respect his troops

He did chest bumps, high fives, and other things with the graduates.  One graduate handed him a cell phone that was dialed to his parents in the stands and Bush talked to them.   He even did a body builder pose with a graduate.   it was a blast to watch!

Congrats to your buddy. The AF could use a few more good men and as of today there is some more room at the top

If I am correct, the secretary of the air force got the axe?  If so, he was at the graduation.

Secretary of the Air Force (civilian) and the Chief of Staff (.mil) both got the axe, and deservedly so. Flying fuckin nukes across the CONUS
