President And Mrs. Obama To Visit Georgia Troops

FORT STEWART, Ga. (WAOK/WTEV)– President Barack Obama will be returning to Georgia again this month but this time for a different reason than his fund raising trip in March.

President and Mrs. Obama will be making the trip south to Georgia on Friday to visit with troops and military families at Fort Stewart.

“I was notified this morning about this exciting trip,” said The Democratic Party of Georgia’s Chairman Mike Berlon said Monday. “He will be visiting with the troops, veterans and military families that have been crucial to our efforts in Iraq and Afghanistan.”

Fort Stewart is the largest US Army installation east of the Mississippi River. Berlon says he’s delighted to show the President and First Lady all that South Georgia has to offer. “We have so many fascinating places in our state and Fort Stewart is one of our most treasured.”
