2. SOUNDBITE (English) Dr. Jill Biden, U.S. First Lady:
"I just wanted to come today to say thank you to all of you for keeping me and my family safe. And I know that you've left your home states. The Bidens are a National Guard family, our son Beau was Delaware Army National Guard. He served for a year in Iraq, in 2008-2009. So I'm a National Guard mom and when I saw, you know the great job that you've done over the inauguration and all that you've done and you've left your home states to come here to protect us, I just wanted to say thank you from President Biden and from the whole, entire Biden family. So the White House baked you some chocolate chip cookies. I can't say that I baked them all myself, but I just wanted to give everybody a cookie. It's just a small thank you for your service and your families' service and all you have done for our nation. And tell you that I truly appreciate all that you do. And you are... the National Guard will always hold a special place in the hearts of all the Bidens. So thank you. Thank you very much."

First lady Jill Biden visited Guard troops outside the Capitol on Friday, bringing them cookies and thanking them for protecting her family.
She noted that the Bidensâ€™ late son, Beau, served in the Delaware Army National Guard.
A jittery Washington requested the aid following the riot where police were badly outnumbered, locking down the nation's capital with soldiers, police and barricades and lawmakers and Biden took pains to thank security forces for their effort.
All 25,000 Guard members were vetted by the FBI over concerns of an insider attack, and a dozen were removed from their posts including two who made extremist statements about the inauguration.
