It is true that President Clinton did NOT attend Jambo '93.
President Bush DID attend Jambo '89. His visit, while impressive, wiped
out 1/2 day of activities for the Boys. It made a 3rd trip to the
Ampitheater necessary for the entire Contingent. For those in distant
sub-camps, almost the entire day was shot.
President Reagan did NOT attend Jambo '85. He was scheduled to come, but
was forced to cancel due to the attempt on his life. (he was still
recovering from the gunshots. Mrs. Reagan DID make an appearance at the
Opening (I think) Show. She flew in and out via Chopper.
I don't believe any other Presidents have attended prior Jambo's, other
than those in Washington DC. I know President Reagan did NOT attend Jambo
'81, which was the first at AP Hill.
