President Obama Meets Troop 1097

Girl Scouts Visit Andrews Air Force Base

Obama and Troop 1097

Girl Scout Brownie Troop 1097 was visiting Andrews Air Force base in early May. They were excited to hear that the President would be arriving during their visit. They were told the President doesn't have time to greet folks waiting for his plane. These intrepid Girl Scouts starting waiving and calling out to the President as he walked off the plane. President Obama heard them and walked toward the girls who were about a football field away from him. They all were screaming in excitement, "he's coming, he's coming!" As he approached, he began to hold each of their hands and ask them questions about the troop. He then looked at them all and said "you girls are doing a great thing, let's take a picture." Troop 1097 from Accokeek, MD got a thrill of a lifetime! Go Girl Scouts!
