The article presents the author's experience about his visit to the White House on the Veterans Day. He was accompanied by his companion and country music star Aaron Tippin. The scheduled visit also included a breakfast for veterans service organization leaders and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs leadership. On their arrival to the White House, they were met by different aides to U.S. President George W. Bush. When Tippin met President Bush, and informed the President about his plan to visit Iraq in a couple of weeks to entertain the troops that are positioned in Iraq, the President gave him a message to give to the troops.
