Maxine Waters arrives at camp, on a stop-over visit on her way to Chicago. She met privately with us in our tent, and we were able to actually keep media limited at our brief meeting. She met with Cindy, GSFP, MFSO, IVAW and VFP representatives there that day. I was in the tent representing MFSO, and we each got to give introductions, our brief story of loved ones in Iraq. I showed Maxine my swollen feet 'suffering for the cause' and had to steady her a bit when she thought that I meant fire ants were on her now.
