    Congresscritters are often notified weeks in advance when groups like this will be in DC so they can arrange to meet with them. Going to DC is still a big deal for many folks throughout the country and meeting with your rep while in DC only adds to the experience.

    Also, trips like these are not easily rescheduled or cancelled. But it's a lesson learned for whoever scheduled these guys to be in DC at the beginning of the quarter. Next time plan the trip for sometime in September after the critters return from their summer recess.

    This is much ado about nothing other than folks who love to ham it up for the cameras and will use any means necessary to slight the POTUS. The vets should be PO'd they're being used as props by such obvious tools.

    And I'm glad the old guys got to see the memorial.
