President Obama will visit Fort Bragg next week to speak to troops returning from Iraq, the White House announced this morning.

"Like many other military installations across this nation, during the war in Iraq, service members from Ft. Bragg – and their families – have provided remarkable service to our country through their deployments to Iraq," the White House said in a statement.
