Thursday, 24 Dec 2009 01:15 PM


President Barack Obama says he personally delivered a holiday message to a few members of the U.S. military.

Obama says he wanted to wish the troops a merry Christmas and thank them for their service in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Obama made the calls before he and his family headed to Hawaii for their annual Christmas vacation.

Earlier this month, Obama ordered the deployment of an additional 30,000 U.S. troops to Afghanistan. He has ordered the withdrawal of all U.S. troops from Iraq by the end of 2011.
