"As Kingwood resident Alice Rekeweg approached the gate to the White House, she was so excited that she suddenly was at a loss for words.

'Finally, I pushed the button and said, 'I have an appointment with President Bush in the Oval Office' and we went through the gate. That just blew my mind,' exclaimed Rekeweg. She and her husband, Glen, their son, David Polyansky, and his wife, Kristen, were escorted by U.S. Congressman Ted Poe through a reception area to the president's cabinet room. 'As soon as we came into the West Wing, we saw all these people walk by,' said Rekeweg. 'A Marine opened the door for us and I said, 'OOH RAH Semper Fi.'' "
