A Greenville man and his 7 year-old son get the chance of a life time. A chance to see America's first African-American president sworn into office.

Maurice Jordan and his 7 year-old son were packing up and heading out to the nation's capital Sunday evening.

On Tuesday they will be among millions watching the 44th president getting sworn in.

Jordan called Congressman Walter B. Jones office and requested the tickets right after Obama won the election in November.
