First, I would like to thank everyone who voted... thank you for exercising your right, no matter who you voted for.
Second: Today, three of my Airman volunteered to go to the Middle East for four months. None of them had to go. All three of them were 20 years old. Two of them were Obama supporters. One of them recently got married. All of them represent the best of this country.
Finally: Congratulations to Obama, our first African-American President.
p.s. props to my wife Shannon for going out to vote after a long day, even though the election was effectively over already.
