The President will speak about the enormous sacrifices and achievements of the brave Americans who served in the Iraq War, and he will speak about the extraordinary milestone of bringing the war in Iraq to an end. Like many other military installations across this nation, during the war in Iraq, service members from Ft. Bragg - and their families - have provided remarkable service to our country through their deployments to Iraq. This event is open to pre-credentialed media.

In the afternoon, the President and the First Lady will return to Washington, DC. The departure from Ft. Bragg and the arrival on the South Lawn are open press.
