KANEOHE, Hawaii —In the middle of their Christmas meal, 580 troops and their spouses looked up to see quite the dinner guest. The President and first lady were in Anderson Hall, also known as chow hall on the Marine Corps Base Hawaii.

"Hello everybody. We don't mean to interrupt a good Christmas dinner but we just wanted to come by and say on behalf of all Americans, thank you for the unbelievable work that you guys do every single day. We could not be prouder of you," said President Obama.

The president told the crowd he called 10 service members overseas, from all branches of the military, thanking them as well.
