On Christmas, Obama thanks troops for sacrifices

By Associated Press

KANEOHE BAY, Hawaii (AP) President Barack Obama says he and first lady Michelle Obama couldn't be prouder of the U.S. military. He's thanking American troops for their service this Christmas and says they do unbelievable work every day.

The president and Mrs. Obama are paying a visit to a Marine Corps base in Hawaii, where Obama and his family are on their annual vacation. Almost 600 troops from various military branches are gathered to hear from Obama after being served Christmas dinner.

Obama says he called 10 troops stationed in Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia and Bahrain. He says it's just a sampling of the troops and families that make incredible sacrifices every day.
