Meghan Stapleton, spokesperson, SarahPAC explained that Track’s return home is why Governor Palin is foregoing a Voters Values Summit being held in Washington, DC (Hallow, 2009, Â¶1-5).
Track Palin deployed on September 11, 2008 with the First Stryker Brigade Combat Team, 25th Infantry. The First Stryker Brigade are also known as the Arctic Wolves. Complete information on the Brigade is available here: First Stryker Brigade — Arctic Wolves
Governor Palin interrupted her VP campaign and returned to Alaska so she could bid the Arctic Wolves farewell. Her son was among the soldiers who heard her address.
