Marine One

Somalia-006

See that helicopter in the back of this photo? That is Marine One.

See that man getting out of the back seat of that HUMVEE? That is the President of the United States. George H. W. Bush to be exact.

The day is January 1st, 1993 and the president is touring Somalia for some reason. Probably because he only has about 3 weeks left in his presidency and he has nothing better to do. My job that day was to drive around a truck full of journalists. Driving in a presidential motorcade was cool. Dealing with journalists was not.
