Bring on lunch!

President Barack Obama eats lunch with two soldiers and two local barbers, in honor of the upcoming Father's Day weekend, at Kenny's BBQ Smokehouse in Washington, DC, on June 13, 2012. Seated alongside Obama are: Otis Gamble (R) of Mason's Barber Shop, US Army Captain Joubert Paulino (L), Nurney Mason (top L) of Mason's Barber Shop, and US Army First Lieutenant William Edwards, winner of the 2012 Military Fatherhood Ward. The barbers are participating in a new Health and Human Services campaign, "Fatherhood Buzz," which reaches out to dads through barbers and barbershops, providing information about various topics including financial and job training.
