First lady Jill Biden visited Guard troops outside the Capitol on Friday, bringing them cookies and thanking them for protecting her family. (Jan. 22)
JILL BIDEN: I just wanted to come today to say thank you to all of you for keeping me and my family safe. And I know that you've left your home states.
The Bidens are a National Guard family. Our son Beau was Delaware Army National Guard. He served for a year in Iraq in 2008-2009. So I'm a National Guard mom. And what I saw, you know, the great job that you've done over the inauguration and all that you've done, and you've left your home states and you've come here to protect us, I just wanted to say thank you from President Biden, and from the whole-- the entire Biden family.
So the White House baked you some chocolate chip cookies. I can't say that I baked them all myself. So I wanted to give everybody a cookie. It's just a small thank you for your service, and your family's service, and all that you've done for our nation.
I'll tell you that I truly appreciate all that you do. And you-- the National Guard will always hold a special place in the hearts of all the Bidens. So thank you. Thank you very much.
