My granddaughter Tara was able to meet the First Lady, Michelle Obama. Her husband Dawson was part of the Marine Corp security provided for the First Lady in her visit to San Diego. Tara was able to sit in one of the front rows. Ms. Obama made a visit to encourage the Marines and their families. Tara said she "felt pretty blessed to meet the first African-American First Lady. She's a beautiful and wise woman." This happened today at Camp Pendleton.
