The members of the U.S. Women’s World Cup Team were each given a copy of a very special note today, on White House stationary. It said:
To the members of the U.S. Women’s National Team:
I send greetings as you prepare for the 2007 FIFA Women’s World Cup. America is proud of your commitment to excellence and your determination to give your best in representing your country. Your hard work has earned you a chance to compete against other nations’ best players, and your dedication and passion for your sport reflect the great spirit of our Nation.
Laura and I wish all the best in your efforts. Good luck on the field.
