The Cove Herald has the update to the original story, Cove veteran presents Purple Heart to President Bush.

Bill and Georgia Thomas reported they were elated Monday when they met in the Oval Office with President George W. Bush to present him with a Purple Heart.

“We were just absolutely bowled over. Without reservation, it was one of the highlights of our life. He was such a gracious host,” Thomas said. “It was just an incredible, incredible experience.”

The couple was able to meet with President Bush for about 20 minutes to present him with one of three Purple Hearts that Bill Thomas received during his service in Vietnam.

“He said he didn’t feel like he had earned it,”
Thomas said, noting the president looked thinner in person than on television.

That’s an understatement.

The national blogs are hitting it. Crooks and Liars and The Carpetbagger Report are on it.
