President Bush Fulfilled a Promise to Jog with a Wounded Vet-Truth!
Summary of eRumor:
The eRumor circulates with a picture of President George W. Bush jogging with a man who has an artificial leg.
The accompanying text says the jogger with the president is Mike McNaughton, who was wounded while serving in the U.S. Army in Afghanistan.
He says that President Bush visited him in the hospital and told Michael that when he could run a mile, they would do it together.
We don’t know about the president calling him every month, but the story is true.
According to the White House, President and Mrs. Bush visited Michael at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C. on January 17, 2004.
That was when the president wished him a speedy recovery so they might run together.
Then on April 14, 2004, the two jogged a mile on the South Lawn of the White House.
