(Obama Inauguration Lincoln Memorial Event)
I grew up in a military family -- and my role models in life were my Mom and Dad, Lt. Col. Earl Woods.
My dad was a Special Forces operator and many nights friends would visit our home. They represented every branch of service, and every rank. In my Dad, and in those guests, I saw firsthand the dedication and commitment of those who serve. They come from every walk of life. From every part of our country. Time and again, across generations, they have defeneded our safety in the dark of night and far from home.

Classy. That Tiger is a slim customer.
Tiger’s a class act. I’m thrilled he’s back in the game.
very classy remarks from a classy guy. perhaps not surprisingly, this is the first I’ve heard of it.
Where is poster Frantzie? He will be along to tell us Tiger Woods is a steroids abuser, Obama loving wife beater.
Well done, Tiger. The statement is respectful, but does not feed into the Obama Mania Machine.
Tiger is one smart cookie.
I guess where he gets into trouble is he can be potty mouthed at times and arrogant at others. But, so be it, the good tiger far outweighs the bad tiger.
The dogs alone show he’s a decent guy. Great family pic, and good article!
Amen. He does good things with his money. Is he perfect? No. But who is.
Good remarks from the Tiger.
Too bad Hussein does not have his upbringing, morals, ethics, patriotism, honesty -
Yes, he had good parents. Isn’t his mother Hawaiian, or part Hawaiian? [I didn’t read the article clear through, lol]
Tiger Woods said he wasn’t actually “black” at all — he was “Cablinasian.”
Woods made his remarks on “Oprah,” when he was asked if it bothered him to be called an African-American. “It does,” he said. “Growing up, I came up with this name: I’m a ‘Cablinasian.’” As in Caucasian-black-Indian-Asian.
Woods has a black father (or to be precise, if I am interpreting Woods’ reported ancestry correctly, a half-black, one-quarter American Indian, one-quarter white father) and a Thai mother.
Good post potlatch -
I was curious about that so had to look it up, lol.
