Obama Calls 10 Military Members to Thank Them

In keeping with holiday tradition, President Obama called 10 members of the U.S. armed services today to thank them for their service.

In the call made earlier today to two service members from the Army, the Marine Corps, the Navy, the Air Force, the Coast Guard, the White House reports he "thanked them for their service and wished them and their families a happy Thanksgiving."

The White House did not specify where the individuals called were based or stationed.

Both the president and first lady also took to Twitter today to tweet holiday thanks.

Obama tweeted, "Today, let's pledge to help our fellow Americans in need, because we are greater together than we are on our own. #HappyThanksgiving -bo."

While Michelle, tweeting from her FLOTUS account, thanked military families.

"This #Thanksgiving, let's give thanks for all our brave men & women in uniform and their families. We're so grateful for your sacrifice. -mo"

The "BO" and "MO" signature specifies the tweet was authored and sent directly from Barack Obama and Michelle Obama, respectively.
