Sarah Palin Recognizes Those Serving in the Armed Forces

We had a neighbor stop by for a little while this afternoon to ask about the satellite dish then we headed out to see Sarah Palin who was recognizing all those who were serving in the armed forces before she left office this weekend. She would be in Wasilla tonight and would be appearing in Anchorage and Fairbanks before the weekend was out and the new governor was sworn in so we decided to go see her.

We arrived a little late but from what we understand she didn't address the crowd. People who had a loved one in the armed forces would come up to the microphone, tell who it was in their family that was serving, what their military branch and rank was and where they were serving then Sarah Palin would shake their hand or give them a hug. The lieutenant governor, Sean Parnell, was present too.
