Tuesday July 8, 1969
- The first of 25,000 American troops to be withdrawn from the Vietnam War arrive at McCord Air Force Base in Washington state.

- The Tricky One- goes to his 4th Washington Senators baseball game of the season and they finally win when he was in attendance beating the Cleveland Indians 3-0. Milhous Nixon is without question the most avid sports fan to ever occupy The White House. He would have made a good Commissioner of Baseball.
- Better late than never- or Why would anyone even want to see these bums in the first place–Vanilla Fudge arrived four hours late for their concert at Bloosom Amphitheater outside of Akron, Ohio- they didn’t follow their GPS system obviously- they went 200 miles away to North Hampton, Ohio instead of Northampton Township. They finally arrived and began playing at 12:30am.
Thursday July 10, 1969.
- The first parade for Vietnam Vets took place the 9th Infantry Division of the U.S. Army marching through Seattle to cheers and booing of demonstrators from Seattle’s anti-war movement. Sad. They were booing the wrong people.
