George, Laura visit Fort Hood.

It’s not far from where they live, of course.

Last night former President George W. Bush and his wife Laura made a secret visit to the devastated military families at Fort Hood.

The Bushes instructed the commander of the mourning military base that they wanted no publicity. With their Secret Service detail, Bush and his wife made the 30 mile trip unannounced from their ranch near Crawford, Texas Friday evening.

Note the lack of photos (Top of the Ticket had to use a stock picture from Qatar in 2003, apparently).  And I am fighting the urge to editorialize this.

It is… difficult.
