Saving a Spot for Sarah

Posted by Adrienne Ross on October 27, 2009

By Adrienne Ross – http://www.motivationtruth.com

This is a story that is sure to make you smile at the end, originating from Life in 3D.

A woman came in last night looking for a book by some feminist author that I had never heard of before, no big surprise there. So, I look it up in our search engine and the computer says that we might have it in the store. MIGHT have it, not WILL. So I tell her that I can check our inventory and see if it’s there and show her the section it would be in.

“No, that’s fine, I’ll find it myself. I’m going to look around a bit first”

Ten minutes later, as I’m showing another customer to 1984 I run across her in Literature looking around and she barges in to the conversation I’m having with my customer and sneers “Where is the section on Women’s rights?”

I tell her again “It’s upstairs and I’ll be happy to take you to it as soon as I am done here.”

“No, I can find it myself.” Note the lack of a ‘thank you’.

Eventually the customer accepts help, but she is complaining on the way to the section, talking all kinds of junk about how:

…the women’s studies section should be near the front of the store because it’s so important and how this author’s book should be on display because she’s doing a signing tour in California right now and she’s a NEW YORK TIMES COLUMNIST!!

She becomes even more disgruntled when she gets to the section because the book is nowhere to be found. According to her, the book deserves the place of honor in the store because it is the book!

You just have to love the employee’s response:

“Well, ma’am, we were going to but we’re saving that spot for Sarah Palin.”

Like I said, you just have to love it!

That employee has one request, and I’ll post it here, for after that exchange he deserves it:

Now all I can ask for is a signed copy of “Going Rogue” with the inscription “Instinct, Thanks for saving me a spot – Sarah”

I really hope Instinct gets his wish granted.

Sarah Palin On Facebook: East Coast Races Impact All Americans

Posted by citizens4palin on October 27, 2009

Greta_HalloweenInt

Complete transcript of Governor Palin’s Facebook entry:

As I stand here in a high school gymnasium watching freshmen girls’ basketball games, I’m struck by the sight of America’s future right in front ofby me – these tenacious young women full of energy and intensity – I want them to realize every opportunity this great, free nation can provide.

There are big political races on the East Coast that are coming down to the wire – the results of which will impact policies and political actions that touch all of us in every state. Like other independent Americans, you know I don’t always see eye-to-eye with Republican political committees, so when I tell you that the Republican Governors Association has my complete support and confidence in its campaign efforts back East, know that I really mean it. The RGA is helping lead the conservative comeback, BEGINNING THIS YEAR, and its involvement in the East Coast races is significant. I hope you’ll support these efforts, which are vital to the cause for America’s freedom and prosperity: http://www.rga.org/now <http://www.rga.org/initiatives/comeback-fund/>.

Let’s consider the governor’s race in New Jersey. The state has the highest tax burden in the country and the incumbent democrat governor has only added to the economic burden. He eliminated property tax rebates for middle class homeowners while the sales tax increased. Altogether, taxes on the people in the region have increased by billions of dollars. It’s no surprise that New Jersey has the highest unemployment rate in the region! Thankfully, there is an alternative. Residents there will be better off under an administration that understands the benefits that result when workers are allowed to keep more of what they earn. Watch New Jersey’s economy come alive under new leadership that will put government back on the side of the people! Chris Christie promises this new leadership.

Fortunately, New Jersey’s democrat governor is being held accountable with the RGA spending $7 million in the New York and Philadelphia media markets telling the truth about a liberal administrative record while highlighting New Jersey’s tax-hiking ways, and reminding voters there is an alternative! The NY and Philly markets are the most expensive in the nation though, so the RGA is requesting help to stay on the air. Visit http://www.rga.org/now <http://www.rga.org/initiatives/comeback-fund/>.

Then in Virginia – there is a clear difference between Republican Bob McDonnell and his liberal opponent. Republican Bob McDonnell is fighting for cheaper American energy and lower taxes, while his opponent wants to raise taxes, and, amazingly, even bragged about having more earmarks than any other state legislator. Bob McDonnell promises to fight for Virginia’s hard working families, and he opposes some heavy-handed union leadership efforts that could ultimately hurt employers and employees. The RGA has aired $6 million of TV ads exposing the liberal candidate’s record. I encourage you to help fight for our neighbors in the East by visiting: http://www.rga.org/now <http://www.rga.org/initiatives/comeback-fund/>.

Americans who believe in smaller government and free enterprise have a chance to show Washington that people all across the U.S. don’t want an ever-increasing national debt, more dependency on foreign energy sources and more wasteful government spending. If, like me, this is what you want to show Washington, then I hope you’ll support Chris Christie and Bob McDonnell, and the RGA, as great efforts are put forth in these East Coast races.

The young student athletes I’m watching right now are counting on us to do the right thing – to fight for what is right for America today, and into their future. Electing candidates with common sense and respect for freedom is one way we can fight for what is right.

 – Sarah Palin

Sarah Palin: Principles Over Party? In a New York Minute!

Posted by Adrienne Ross on October 26, 2009

By Adrienne Ross – http://www.motivationtruth.com

I’m a New Yorker, so let me chime in on this…

Last week Governor Palin endorsed the Conservative-party candidate, Doug Hoffman, over Republican, Dede Scozzafava, in the New York 23rd Congressional District. A bold move, which we should be used to by now with Sarah. The endorsement has been a conversation-piece since the moment she made it. Whereas Newt Gingrich endorsed Scozzafava, those who put their money where their mouth is could never make such an endorsement.

Regardless of the ‘R’ next to her name, Scozzafava is more of a Liberal than many Liberals are. She is a far cry from a true Republican standing on conservative principles. For some, that’s okay, for as long as the ‘R’ remains by her name, they are content to lend their support. What’s that all about? If we don’t stand for something, what are we doing?

Apparently Newt Gingrich doesn’t get it because he endorsed a woman who is certainly not abiding by the principles of the Party. And what’s his attitude toward people like Sarah Palin, Fred Thompson, and Governor Pawlenty who have put principles over Party by endorsing Hoffman, a true conservative? “Mind your business!” he screams at them. Meanwhile he’s not exactly minding his, for the last time I checked he did not live in New York-23.

Scozzafava is no conservative. She is a RINO (Republican in Name Only), and we can no longer afford to elect people who are not willing to stand up for the principles the people expect them to. Too much is at stake. She does not set herself apart from Democrats, so why would any Republican, who truly cares about principles, support her? It makes no sense.

However, not everyone is willing to go on record–putting their names on the line in the process–for going against “the family.” Some would rather remain silent, like Mitt Romney and Mike Huckabee. Perhaps they find remaining silent easier than bucking the Party for the sake of principles. But by now we ought to expect better of Sarah. She is principled, if nothing else. Remember, in Alaska she took on corrupt politicians regardless of their Party because doing the right thing is doing the right thing–PERIOD. In this case, supporting Scozzafava is not doing the right thing. Here’s a woman who approved of the stimulus plan, supports abortion, and is a threat to the traditional family.

Governor Palin supports Doug Hoffman for good reasons, as noted on her Facebook page (emphasis mine):

The federal government borrows, spends, and prints too much money, while our national debt hits a record high. Government is growing while the private sector is shrinking, and unemployment is on the rise. Doug Hoffman is committed to ending the reckless spending in Washington, D.C. and the massive increase in the size and scope of the federal government. He is also fully committed to supporting our men and women in uniform as they seek to honorably complete their missions overseas.

And best of all, Doug Hoffman has not been anointed by any political machine.

Doug Hoffman stands for the principles that all Republicans should share: smaller government, lower taxes, strong national defense, and a commitment to individual liberty.

Political parties must stand for something. When Republicans were in the wilderness in the late 1970s, Ronald Reagan knew that the doctrine of “blurring the lines” between parties was not an appropriate way to win elections. Unfortunately, the Republican Party today has decided to choose a candidate who more than blurs the lines, and there is no real difference between the Democrat and the Republican in this race. This is why Doug Hoffman is running on the Conservative Party’s ticket.

There’s been an on-going debate about what the Republican Party must do to “right the ship.” Many say we need to move further to the Left, to sell out the values upon which we have been built. In the midst of that nonsensical chit-chat, some, like Governor Palin, are standing up for principles. If that means they have to step away from a professing Republican who does not represent those principles, so be it. Again, doing the right thing is doing the right thing.

When Governor Palin announced on July 3rd that she would be stepping down from the office of governor, she expressed clearly what she would do next (emphasis mine).

And there is such a need to BUILD up and FIGHT for our state and our country. I choose to FIGHT for it! And I’ll work hard for others who still believe in free enterprise and smaller government; strong national security for our country and support for our troops; energy independence; and for those who will protect freedom and equality and LIFE… I’ll work for and campaign for those PROUD to be American, and those who are INSPIRED by our ideals and won’t deride them.

I WILL support others who seek to serve, in or out of office, for the RIGHT reasons, and I don’t care what party they’re in or no party at all. Inside Alaska – or Outside Alaska.

Both the mainstream media and the “political machine” played stupid, like they couldn’t figure out what Governor Palin meant. Maybe now they get the picture: She meant exactly what she said.

75 % Say They Will Buy “Going Rogue” Rather Than “Going Rouge” Parody

Posted by Sarah Palin Web Brigade on October 26, 2009

NPR has been conducting an online poll since last week to find out whether Sarah Palin’s Going Rogue or the Going Rouge parody (to use a nice word) has a greater potential audience. According to Mark Memmott:

“We began this poll about the parody last week, and by 7:15 a.m. ET this morning more than 6,600 people had voted. The results as of that moment:

— 75% said: “Hate it! I’ll buy Rogue.
— 16% said: “Love it! I’ll buy Rouge.
— 9% said: “Count me out. I don’t want either book”.

As we noted last week, besides the clever difference in the titles there will be one very easy way to tell the difference between the books (which both hit stores the week of Nov. 16).

Rouge (the parody) is going to be a paperback. Rogue (Palin’s memoir) will be a hardcover.”

You can vote in this poll at:

Goal: 1m FaceBook Supporters, $10 per donor

Posted by Ron Devito on October 24, 2009

FaceBook Sarah Palin Campaigns

Goal: 1 million supporters.

Please get the message out to anyone who supports Governor Palin but is not yet doing so on Facebook or does not yet have a Facebook account. Facebook is currently Governor Palin’s online base of operations.

http://www.facebook.com/sarahpalin

“I’m in for $10 for Sarah Palin”

A number of Governor Palin’s supporters on FaceBook are running a campaign called “I’m In for $10.” When the number of Governor Palin’s Facebook supporters reaches 1 million, we donate at least $10 to SarahPAC or the The Alaska Fund Trust.

All donations are to be made directly to the respective sites. “I’m in for $10” focuses generally on SarahPAC; however, The Alaska Fund Trust should be part of our efforts. The crux of “I’m in for $10” is that all the donations are timed to take place on the day Governor Palin acquires her 1 millionth supporter.

http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=142842668786&ref=mf

Alaska Fund Trust

Gov. Palin still has $244K in legal bills incurred fighting frivolous ethics complaints lodged by Obama cronies, and lone stalkers. Please donate to http://www.thealaskafundtrust.com and help make Gov. Palin whole.

SarahPAC

Help Gov. Palin support conservative candidates and get her message out. Please donate to http://www.sarahpac.com or click either of the two SarahPAC links she provides on her Facebook page.

Stand Up for Our Nation

Governor Palin is forming a new organization called “Stand up for Our Nation,” and this organization is to go live around the time her book is released. No further details are available as to the organization, structure, mission, and website.

SarahPAC and the The Alaska Fund Trust should continue to be top priority for Sarah Palin-related donations.

Thank you for your generosity and support.

Public School Retracts Governor Palin Book Banning Lie, in Baby-Step Sort of Way

Posted by Adrienne Ross on October 22, 2009

By Adrienne Ross – http://www.motivationtruth.com

Last Friday, I posted “Update to Public School Library Propagates Falsehood that Governor Palin Banned Books.” I went step by step and day by day through my battle to correct the record and emphatically declare that Sarah Palin never, ever banned any books. At that point, I was turning it over to the public who had voiced a desire to step in and hold the school accountable. No longer was I going to stand between anyone and their efforts to see this wrong corrected, which I had done while I attempted to right this wrong.

I am not sure who, if anyone, actually contacted the school to voice their concerns. However, I do know that after fighting this battle since late September and receiving no responses at all last week, I received an email Monday afternoon from the high school principal asking me to call his assistant to set up yet another meeting.

We met yesterday, and I was asked again what I was seeking. I expressed that I had not changed my mind; I wanted the retraction. I was told that the library display window is seasonal, and something else is already occupying the space. I was also told that if Governor Palin were a current candidate, they would seek to correct the wrong. Since she’s not, basically it’s no big deal. I don’t know about you, but common sense tells me that most of us will never be candidates for anything. Does that mean people can lie about us without repercussions, simply because our names are not on a ballot? That makes no sense, and I expressed as much.

Finally, without a word, the principal went to his computer, began typing, and printed out a piece of paper with the retraction. He was going to run it by the superintendent, and if approved, it would be posted.

Today it was posted.

Perhaps I should feel a sense of victory, but I feel a gnawing annoyance. Why is that?

First, only the superintendent seemed to get the fact that displaying the original poster was the wrong move and that it should have come down the first time I asked. It was indeed a lie designed to express a political agenda at the expense of the truth that we should be providing our students. Even yesterday, when he asked to see the truthful articles that I had with me, the principal tried to defend the original display’s content.

Some kind of acknowledgement that this kind of thing was ill-willed, unacceptable, and would never happen again was in order–if for no other reason than in a school truth ought to count. Instead, I sensed a desire to simply shut me up somehow because it had become painfully clear that the issue was not going away. It was sort of a “Will this make you happy?” kind of move.

Second, he printed the retraction on a little piece of paper posted in the lower right-hand corner of the small library window–not the main display section where the incorrect information had been displayed. The paper can barely be spotted and is in front of some ghost cut-outs that had, I assume, been previously hung up. (This is part of the seasonal display?) There is no article posted, only a note at the bottom of the sheet that directs people to the library desk if they want to pick up an article about what the paper says: “SARAH PALIN NEVER BANNED BOOKS.” Of course, they’d have to first spot the paper before they can actually inquire about it.

I don’t like how it all unfolded. However, I know I should see the miniature retraction as some sort of small victory. While it is a pitiful attempt to rectify the situation, it does do something. If nothing else, I know I held people accountable to the truth, I looked out for our students’ best interest, and I defended Governor Palin, who deserves to be defended against malicious smears. The smears of the mainstream media and anklebiters are bad enough, but a public school is certainly a place where her record–and everyone else’s–ought to be safe from lies.

To Kill a Mockingbird, in my opinion, is the greatest piece of literature ever written, and I was reminded of this masterpiece today. I take some comfort in the words of Maudie Atkinson who tells Jem, after Atticus defends Tom Robinson in court, “And I said to myself, ‘it’s a step. It’s just a baby-step, but it’s step.'”

Below are pictures. The last one is the main window, where the original misinformation was posted, and where the truth ought to hang:

Sarah Palin Endorses Doug Hoffman for NY-23

Posted by Adrienne Ross on October 22, 2009

By Adrienne Ross – http://www.motivationtruth.com

We have been waiting for this endorsement. Here it is, and as a New Yorker, I am especially pleased to report that Sarah Palin has endorsed Doug Hoffman for the 23rd Congressional District of New York.

Via her Facebook page, Sarah announces:

The people of the 23rd Congressional District of New York are ready to shake things up, and Doug Hoffman is coming on strong as Election Day approaches! He needs our help now.

The votes of every member of Congress affect every American, so it’s important for all of us to pay attention to this important Congressional campaign in upstate New York. I am very pleased to announce my support for Doug Hoffman in his fight to be the next Representative from New York’s 23rd Congressional district. It’s my honor to endorse Doug and to do what I can to help him win, including having my political action committee, SarahPAC, donate to his campaign the maximum contribution allowed by law.

Our nation is at a crossroads, and this is once again a “time for choosing.”

The federal government borrows, spends, and prints too much money, while our national debt hits a record high. Government is growing while the private sector is shrinking, and unemployment is on the rise. Doug Hoffman is committed to ending the reckless spending in Washington, D.C. and the massive increase in the size and scope of the federal government. He is also fully committed to supporting our men and women in uniform as they seek to honorably complete their missions overseas.

And best of all, Doug Hoffman has not been anointed by any political machine.

Doug Hoffman stands for the principles that all Republicans should share: smaller government, lower taxes, strong national defense, and a commitment to individual liberty.

Political parties must stand for something. When Republicans were in the wilderness in the late 1970s, Ronald Reagan knew that the doctrine of “blurring the lines” between parties was not an appropriate way to win elections. Unfortunately, the Republican Party today has decided to choose a candidate who more than blurs the lines, and there is no real difference between the Democrat and the Republican in this race. This is why Doug Hoffman is running on the Conservative Party’s ticket.

Republicans and conservatives around the country are sending an important message to the Republican establishment in their outstanding grassroots support for Doug Hoffman: no more politics as usual.

You can help Doug by visiting his official website below and joining me in supporting his campaign:

Canada Free Press: In Praise of Sarah

Posted by Adrienne Ross on October 22, 2009

By Adrienne Ross – http://www.motivationtruth.com

In an article for Canada Free Press, Bob Beers does a thorough job of breaking down why Governor Palin is so reviled by the Left. Judging from her long list of accomplishments and qualities, which he outlines, there really is no question why she is deemed a threat to Liberals. She is!

He writes:

As you can see, accomplishment is the least of Mrs. Palin’s problems. Quite frankly she has a bigger wealth of accomplishment than Obama and his entire cabinet combined. There will probably be screams of outrage from the left on that one, but honestly, based on what this woman has done in the face of intense opposition from both sides of the aisle, Barack Hussein Obama is a rank amateur compared to her All Star performance.

So here is my estimation as to why she is so hated by the left. She is an accomplished, well-spoken housewife and mother; faithful to her God, husband, her children and to her constituents. She has a proven record of honesty and self sacrifice for the good of those who elected her. No wonder the left considers her such an incredible danger. She would be someone who could sit in the oval office with the complete confidence of the majority of Americans behind her. She had to be stopped at all costs because her record is truly unassailable outside of the realm of lies the liberals live in.

Sarah Palin’s character rests upon a rock-solid foundation of achievement.

Mr. Beers highlights Sarah Palin’s incredibly long list of achievements. If you have any doubts as to the weight of her resume’, or simply need a reminder, be sure to click here to read the entire article.

Sarah Palin’s “Going Rogue” Smashes Another Sales Record! Plus, A Sell Out Crowd In Missouri

Posted by Gary P Jackson on October 22, 2009

Sarah Palin’s new book, set for release on November 17th has set yet another sales milestone. According to Newsmax Magazine, Going Rogue, An American Life has smashed all previous sales records for the magazine’s book division.

Sarah Palin’s new book, “Going Rogue: An American Life,” hasn’t even been released yet.

Though it won’t be released until Nov. 17. — it’s already breaking records as an online bestseller.

In fact, it is the best-selling book ever in the history of Newsmax for pre-publication sales.

“Americans are very anxious to read this book,” Christopher Ruddy, editor of Newsmax.com said. “We have never seen so many people pre-ordering a book from us since we started Newsmax in 1998.”

Newsmax has several offers going that couple Sarah’s new book, with subscriptions to their popular magazine.

In other news, Sarah is scheduled to appear at the College of the Ozarks near Branson, Missouri. The college, which bills itself as “Hard Work U” seems to be the perfect fit for Sarah, who is known for her hard work and determination.

From KSPR ABC-TV in Springfield:

By KSPR News

College of the Ozarks news release:

Tickets to attend the Sarah Palin Convocation at College of the Ozarks on December 2, are no longer available. The ticket line quickly filled, consuming all tickets available to the public. Due to limited seating, there was a cap on available tickets. “As a charismatic speaker and highly-interesting political figure, Sarah Palin attracts much public interest,” said Sue Head, Executive Director of The Keeter Center for Character Education. “Because of this, the College anticipated that tickets would go quickly.”

Governor Palin is slated to speak at College of the Ozarks December 2, as part of the Leonard B. and Edith Gittinger Community Convocation series, which was developed to attract renowned speakers to share on the topics of character, work ethic and citizenship with College of the Ozarks students and the community alike.

It is also reported that Sarah will headline a Right To Life benefit in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on November 6th. From their Life Voice blog:

Wisconsin Right to Life Presents Sarah Palin

Yes, it’s true! Sarah Palin is coming to Milwaukee to appear at a benefit for the educational efforts of Wisconsin Right to Life. The event is Friday, November 6 at 7:30pm at the Wisconsin Exposition Center at State Fair Park, Hall B. You won’t want to miss this exciting opportunity to hear Sarah Palin!

While we do not have confirmation of this event, it must be noted that Sarah is a strong supporter of right to life issues, and as Governor, traveled to a Right To Life event in Evansville, Indiana to promote their efforts.

Sarah is also scheduled to be a guest on the Oprah Winfrey show in an episode that will air November 16th the day before her book hits the shelves nationwide. Winfrey, who’s show is still trying to climb out of the ratings hole it fell into after she, for the first time, endorsed and campaigned for a candidate, Barack Obama, is looking for Sarah to bring in the viewers. Her move to support Obama alienated a significant amount of her audience.

Sarah, who is ratings gold, just ask Lorne Michaels, should help Oprah’s floundering ratings. Just the dynamics of the interview will be worth a look.

Sarah Palin Advancing in a New Direction

Posted by Dr. Fay on October 22, 2009

According to news sources, Sarah Palin has scheduled two other speaking engagements in addition to her November 16 interview with Oprah Winfrey. Keep in mind that there has been no official word from a Palin spokesman concerning any of the three engagements. Several times in the past, groups have issued an invitation to Governor Palin to speak at an event and then advertised that she would be making an appearance before receiving confirmation from her that she would indeed do so. That has resulted in misunderstandings and negative publicity. So with that caveat in mind. the following news items are presented.

On October 18, Ozark’s First announced Governor Palin’s December 2 speaking engagement:

Former republican Vice Presidential Candidate Sarah Palin is coming to the Ozarks.

She’s booked to speak at the College of the Ozarks on Wednesday, December 2nd.

It’s for the Leonard B. and Edith Gittinger Community Convocation at the Keeter Gymnasium.

The tickets are free; call (417) 690-2240. They’ll be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis the week of Thanksgiving.

The former Alaska governor is expected to speak at 7 p.m. that day.

On October 20, KSPR News announced that the tickets had been sold out:

College of the Ozarks news release:

Tickets to attend the Sarah Palin Convocation at College of the Ozarks on December 2, are no longer available. The ticket line quickly filled, consuming all tickets available to the public. Due to limited seating, there was a cap on available tickets. “As a charismatic speaker and highly-interesting political figure, Sarah Palin attracts much public interest,” said Sue Head, Executive Director of The Keeter Center for Character Education. “Because of this, the College anticipated that tickets would go quickly.”

KTUU TV announced on October 20 that Governor Palin would be speaking at a Right to Life Event in Milwaukee on November 6:

Former Gov. Sarah Palin will speak in a Milwaukee, Wisc. suburb next month as part of a program presented by Wisconsin Right to Life.

Officials say tickets must be purchased in advance with a limit of four per order.

Palin’s stop in Milwaukee comes 11 days before her memoirs are to be released.

On October 21, the Juneau Empire published this summary:

Former Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin is about to re-emerge on the national scene.

It’s been four months since Palin resigned as Alaska governor, and she’s largely been out of the public eye working on her memoir. “Going Rogue: An American Life” will debut next month.

Now Palin is ready to help promote the book by sitting down with Oprah Winfrey, who endorsed Barack Obama in the presidential election.

Harpo Productions announced Tuesday that Palin will appear on “The Oprah Winfrey Show” on Monday, Nov. 16.

According to Harpo, the interview will be Palin’s first about her new book, and it will be the first time Palin and Winfrey will have met.

Palin’s book was No. 4 on Amazon.com’s best-seller list on Tuesday. It’s slated to be released Tuesday, Nov. 17, the day after Palin’s interview with Winfrey.

Palin will also be hitting the speech circuit in November and December.

Palin is scheduled to speak in a Milwaukee suburb next month as part of a program presented by Wisconsin Right to Life.

Officials say no tickets will be sold at the door of the Nov. 6 event at Wisconsin Exposition Center at State Fair Park in West Allis, Wis.

Palin also is set to speak about patriotism, citizenship and civic engagement on Dec. 2 at the College of the Ozarks in southwest Missouri. The Springfield News-Leader reported Tuesday that Palin will be the featured speaker for a community convocation.

The College of the Ozarks is a Christian school near Branson with about 1,400 students.

Since resigning from office July 26, Palin has made only a few public appearances, most notable a speech before investors in Hong Kong. She’s also appeared at a gun rights dinner in Anchorage, and attended the welcome home ceremony in Fairbanks for soldiers, including her son, Track.
