Call it "Operation Greenback Freedom." On this Monday's episode of NBC's Deal or No Deal, as Capt. Joseph Kobes - a Purple Heart and Bronze Star recipient who has served in Iraq three times - attempts to win enough cash to pay off his parents' home, President Bush appears via video to surprise the war vet with a thank-you for time served and a wish for luck in his quest for big bucks. Bush taped the segment at the White House, and I presume the message was approved by John McCain. - MWM
