A part of Governor Palin’s duties while she is in country is to inspect the troops and ascertain how the experience in Kosovo will better prepare these service members for missions within Alaska and future deployments overseas.I love that. As commander-in-chief, Palin oversees the National Guard troops for her state. That's what's great about Governors, they have commander-in-chief experience they can use when they're POTUS.
“As commander-in-chief, Governor Palin is the one we look to for leadership and inspiration while serving and defending the sovereign boundaries of Alaska,” said Lt. Gen. (AK) Craig E. Campbell, Adjutant General of the Alaska National Guard. “We thank the commanding general of the Multi-National Task Force East for the invitation to visit and for his hospitality while in country.”
The trip is supposed to last through the weekend, where she'll also visit other troops in other countries. Stay tuned for details.
