From the White House web site:
For the first time in a weekly address, the President is joined by the First Lady as they celebrate Christmas. They both honor those serving overseas, those who have sacrificed for their country, and the families that stand by them. Find ways to lend our troops and their families a home through DOD’s Military Homefront, OurMilitary.mil, and of course the USO.
Merry Christmas to all of you.. I so appreciate each of you so much.. You make me feel like what I do is special and valued. Thank you for supporting my efforts and letting me know you care.
We do need to remember our Military, our Veterans and all who work during the holidays to make this country run as it does. The support staff who help them all, the people who work hard to make sure they get home for the holidays when they can.. They need to be remembered too.
I hope you will take a moment to think of them during this Holiday Season.. so Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa, or any of the other Holidays I might have missed, I apologize for my ignorance and hope you have a wonderful Holiday Season.
