Obama Telephones Thanks to Service Members Abroad

Thursday, 24 Nov 2011 12:19 PM

 

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama has telephoned 10 U.S. service members stationed abroad to wish them a happy Thanksgiving and praise their military service.

Obama made the calls Thursday morning from the Oval Office to two members each from the Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marines and Navy who are deployed in support of U.S. operations in Afghanistan and Iraq. Obama has made the Thanksgiving calls each year since becoming president.

In a radio address to the nation, the president also asked Americans to remember the men and women in the military who are spending the holiday serving their country overseas.
