REMINDER: State of the Union Address

posted Jan 25, 2011, 5:53 PM by King, Zachary Z Capt CAP/NJ Wing AGRA

Good Evening Jack Schweiker Cadets,

In just under half an hour, the president will deliver this year’s State of the Union Address.

For those of you who will be attending the review boards on Saturday at Wing Headquarters, I can almost guarantee that some of the current event questions will pertain to various items that will be included in the address this evening.

The State of the Union will also be a topic of discussion in our next leadership class in February.  Regardless of political affiliation, the state of our union has an impact on the lives of all of us.  As President Kennedy remarked in one of his State of Union addresses: “It is my task to report to you, the state of the union, it is everyone’s task to improve it.”  Bear that in mind as you watch this evening, as it will, as I said, be the theme of our next leadership/government discussion.

For more information, see below.

Very respectfully,

ZACHARY Z. KING, 1st Lt, CAP

Deputy Commander for Seniors

Leadership Officer

Jack Schweiker Composite Squadron

Cell: 856-305-9984

You've Never Seen a State of the Union Address Like This Before

We're putting the finishing touches on a new feature for WhiteHouse.gov that will offer an enhanced viewer experience for President Obama's State of the Union address.

As President Obama addresses the Nation, WhiteHouse.gov will offer a companion stream of visual aids, like charts and quick stats to provide context and emphasize key points.  Anyone will be able to use this feature by heading to WhiteHouse.gov/sotu and using the "Enhanced" tab.

This "Enhanced SOTU" feature is just one of many ways we are working to provide as much information as possible and answer your questions about the speech. As Dan pointed out Friday, there are a variety of opportunities to engage online with White House officials and even President Obama himself. Immediately after the speech (as in, you don't even have to leave the webpage because the video feed will automatically switch) policy experts will answer questions submitted via the web and a live audience at the White House.  And for the rest of the week, we're working with a wide range of online communities to surface even more feedback about the President's speech and the state of our union.

So Tuesday night at 9 p.m. EST, be sure to load WhiteHouse.gov to make your State of the Union experience as informative and interactive as possible.  Want a reminder?  Sign up for email updates and we'll be sure to send you one.
