I just got back from my 4 mile run this morning, during which all I could think about was how proud I am of our troops.  Osama bin Laden is no more.  Thanks to all those who risked their lives to make that happen, and to all of our military.

Today, I am particularly thinking about each of my War College friends from the Class of 2009 — was that already 2 whole years ago?  I am so grateful to you and your families for your hard work and your great sacrifice in service to this country.  I applaud you.
