KENNEWICK, Wa-- A Kennewick family learned their son was on TV with First Lady Laura Bush. 
Jarryd Hammett of Kennewick was in Afghanistan during the First Lady's recent visit. 

His mother in-law saw him next to Laura Bush on the news and emailed KNDU. Hammett had just celebrated his first wedding anniversary before being deployed to Afghanistan. He's only been there three weeks and had not been in contact with his family yet.

Hammet's mom said he is always lucky at being in the right place at the right time.
He has also met basketball star Charles Barkley and Jay Leno in Iraq.
