(KSL News) -- A Utah soldier had an unusual experience today when President Bush rallied American troops in Germany. Private Brian Wasden and his wife Beth were invited to attend.
Mr. Bush spoke to Army troops stationed in Germany as part of his five-day trip to Europe. The soldier's parents in Sandy say their son was picked to represent his company, the 1st Armored Division.
The Wasdens were proud when they heard the news.
Miriam Wasden, Soldier's Mother: "It's an honor. I don't know if I'm surprised. He's a go-getter and loves the army."
Private Wasden joined the army a year ago. He could be headed for Iraq later this year.
