Coast Guard guarding airport

Feb 18 2011 my "Bucket List" pics

I was so excited to be only 6oo yds from the President. The Hillsboro Police did check me out to make sure who I was but they did let me stand at the fence and take pictures. The place where the pics were taken is the gate where the Blazers go in.

Question: When Bidden was in town a few months ago this Coast Guard helicopter was the only chopper I saw flying over head for him. Why the Coast Guard? I would expect a more visible presence of armed forces protecting our leaders from the air.

I Pray for the President, if he fails we "ALL" lose. I am not a real fan of the Washington types, as I sit here now, where I must employ a Walker to get around, due to the pain from Cancer (Multiple Myeloma) I contracted while in Viet Nam in 1968.

Nice pics, but the helicopter that carrys the president is not called heli 1. It's actual call sign is Marine 1.

The only way that would be in my bucket list, was if it was going down in flames.
