Kitty Felde

That's where the President went

Usually, when the President leaves town, you can track his progress by the trio of large helicopters that leave the White House, travel down the Potomac, turn left at the Anacostia, and head out to Andrews Air Force Base. 

Yesterday, a pair of much smaller choppers flew right over where I live.  That's unusual because the airspace over Washington is off limits to most aircraft.  It was also unusual because they left from Ft. McNair, two blocks down the street.  And then they were followed by one of the large helicopters associated with the President.  I couldn't figure out where he was going.  It wasn't on the official schedule.

This morning, the mystery was solved.  The President visited Dover, Delaware to meet the aircraft carrying the remains of the Navy Seals killed when their chopper went down in Afghanistan.
