I work with a retired Marine who flew with Marine One/HMX-1 during the Clinton and G.W. Bush administrations. While President Bush was in Louisville a fellow member of the squadron was taking a tour of the Louisville Slugger factory and saw that they had a Presidential bat on display. He was told he could make a personalized bat, so he told them he wanted the Presidential seal bat. Of course, they told him that he couldn't use the Seal as it was for the President and his staff. Needless to say, he pulled out his White House credentials and told them again that he wanted THAT bat. After a discussion with the someone behind closed doors the tour guide came back and agreed that they could sell him a Presidential Seal bat. Before placing his order he called back to HMX-1 and got a few more orders from the other crew members. This is one of the bats.

Just thought I would share...

What a great story. I think we need to identify who the true heroes are in our society and honor them. The military and veterans are among the true heroes.
