Did they get fed?
It sounds like they were seated, fed, and shook hands with The Big O & Co. however, they were disappointed the WH didn’t send them pictures.
"I told him, 'I don't think this is part of the White House tour,'" Darden said. "He said, 'No it's not. It's an invitation event for veterans.'"
The official, whose name and title Darden didn't remember, asked whether Darden was a veteran. Darden told him he was a Navy veteran, and the aide suggested he stay, Darden said.
It sounds like a CYA moment for an aide or two that at the same time was a nice moment for a veteran.
