Wowww. I'm generally annoyed when the media make a huge deal about politicians' minor faux pas, but this one is really quite the doozy.
Speaking to troops of the 10th Mountain Division yesterday at Fort Drum, NY, President Obama attempted to go about praising the division for their service:
"First time I saw 10th Mountain Division, you guys were in southern Iraq. When I went back to visit Afghanistan, you guys were the first ones there. I had the great honor of seeing some of you because a comrade of yours, Jared Monti, was the first person who I was able to award the Medal of Honor to who actually came back and wasn't receiving it posthumously."
