Obama honoring return of fallen soldiers

President Barack Obama is making an overnight dash to Dover Air Force Base in Delaware to greet the return of fallen soldiers.
Obama's unannounced move will give him a direct look at the ultimate cost of war during the deadliest month of the war in Afghanistan for U.S. forces.
On a clear fall night, Obama was flying by his Marine One helicopter directly to Dover on a trip expected to last about four hours.
He was expected to greet the flag-draped caskets of soldiers killed in Afghanistan but was not likely to make any public comments on site.
The White House kept the trip off his schedule, informing a small group of traveling reporters in advance on condition of secrecy.
