“It was my pleasure, Sir.”

David Bellavia tells the story of the day his friend and Wounded Warrior Sergeant William “Bill” Brooks met his Commander in Chief.

With supreme effort, Bill stood before President Bush and extended his hand. Bush clasped it, but didn’t shake. Instead, he embraced Brooks and holds on to him.

Bush didn’t break the embrace. Instead, he cradled the back of Bill’s head with one hand and kissed his cheek.

Bush said with tears in eyes, “I want to thank you again.”

Brooks replied, “It was my pleasure, Sir.”

Please read the rest of David's story.

While you are there, take a few moments to read "Our Mission is Finally Accomplished… Anyone Care?", and remember.
