PHOTO OF THE DAY:

US President George W. Bush waves as he boards Air Force One for his last scheduled flight as the sitting president at Naval Station in Norfolk, Virginia, January 10, 2009. Bush took his last official Air Force One flight on Saturday to Virginia for a ceremony to place a warship named after his father into active duty.

QUOTE OF THE DAY:

I want to thank you all for coming. Laura and I are thrilled to be here to help commission an awesome ship and to honor an awesome man: President George H.W. Bush. (Applause.)

To prepare for this day, I went back through some of my father's letters. I thought it was especially interesting to read one that he wrote in the late 1940s. He sent it to a friend -- and here's what he said, he said, "You should see Georgie now. Whenever I come home he greets me and talks a blue streak, sentences disjointed of course." (Laughter.) "He tries to say everything, and the results are often hilarious." (Laughter.) Some things do not change. (Laughter.)

President's Radio Address

THE PRESIDENT: Good morning. This week, I gave my official farewell speech to the men and women of America's Armed Forces in a ceremony at Fort Myer, Virginia. For the past eight years, I have had no higher honor than serving as the Commander-in-Chief of these brave patriots. And when Laura and I depart for Texas later this month, we will take with us many inspiring memories of the valor that we have seen these brave Americans display time and again.

We saw their valor on September the 11th, 2001, in service members rushing into smoke-filled corridors to save their colleagues at the Pentagon, and in planes patrolling the skies above New York City and Washington D.C.

We saw their valor in the days after that attack, when Americans crowded into recruiting centers across our country, raised their hands to serve, and pledged to defend our people and our freedom.

We saw their valor in the forces who deployed to Afghanistan within weeks of 9/11, closed down the terrorist training camps, and drove the Taliban from power.

We saw their valor in the fearless troops who stormed across the Iraqi desert -- and destroyed a regime that threatened America.

We saw their valor in battle-tested warriors who signed up for a second, or third, or fourth tour -- and made the troop surge in Iraq that I announced two years ago today one of the great successes in American military history.

America's Armed Forces have liberated more than 50 million people around the world -- and made our Nation safer. They have taken the fight to the terrorists abroad so that we have not had to face them here at home. And the world has seen something that almost no one thought possible: More than seven years after September the 11th, there has not been another terrorist attack on American soil.

This is no coincidence. In addition to our military, many other Americans have worked tirelessly to ensure our safety in the years since 9/11. Law enforcement officials have worked to secure our country and remained watchful against future attacks. Intelligence analysts have tracked information that allowed us to disrupt terrorist plots before they reached our shores. And homeland security agents have worked to secure our ports, our borders, and our skies.

We owe a debt of gratitude to all of these patriots. Because of their devotion to service, many Americans live their lives without the fear and uncertainty that they felt in the days just after 9/11. This continued safety has been a blessing -- but we must never allow it to foster complacency. America still faces sworn enemies intent on striking our Nation and our people. And we must remain vigilant for as long as that threat remains.

I know that our men and women in uniform have remained vigilant. These Americans answer the call to defend freedom when it is under attack. They put their lives on the line to defend democracy and keep our country safe. And they inspire a Nation with their selflessness and their courage. I am proud to have served as their Commander-in-Chief.

Thank you for listening.

How gracious of the President to do this. And I bet his family and friends did not strip AF1 down and steal all the blankets etc as you know whose kinfolk and friends did.

It IS an awesome dose tonight. Thank you for the presentation. Did you know that AF1 is not considered AF1 until THE PRESIDENT OF THE USA walks aboard? Up until then, it’s considered a plane like any other plane. Same with Marine 1, I suppose. (learned from the History Channel).

Thank you all for posting these threads through the last eight years. I apologize if I am missing anyone else who contributed.

I will miss President Bush and his family tremendously. Although I disagree with some of his economic decisions of late, I truly believe Bush is a fine man and thank him for keeping us safe.

Thank you again for the great work with these posts!

Thanks so much for these extraordinary pictures.

I watched this live (on C-Span - - - no talking heads). When the sailors started running up the stairs to board their new home I got pretty emotional, even tearing up.

It was at this moment that I realized our brave men and women deserve a CIC with the soul of both Bush 41 and 43.

And come January 20th, they will no longer have that.

I had to finally acknowledge that the CIC torch has been passed to someone who does not, cannot, appreciate the awesome responsibility and gift he has been given.
