This veteran wears a protective flap
over his ears while President G.W. Bush
addresses the Veterans of Foreign Wars
about veteran's benefits.
I checked this out on Snopes.com to see if this is an authentic photograph and text. They report that this actually happened during a speech made by Bush at a VFW Convention in Salt Lake City, Utah on August 22, 2005. The man's name is Bill Moyer, a 73 year old WWII veteran who was protesting Bush's policies.
