The first Wisconsin National Guard troops to be addressed by their new commander in chief stayed up until 2:30 a.m. Iraq time for the privilege.
Back in Wisconsin, Governor-Elect Scott Walker spoke with deployed members of the 724th Engineer Battalion - known as "Task Force Badger" in Iraq - during halftime of the Jan. 1 Rose Bowl game featuring the University of Wisconsin Badgers against the Texas Christian University Horned Frogs. The "Halftime with the Troops" event at the East Side Club in Madison included some military family members, and began with a short video of the 724th cheering on the Badgers.
