RALEIGH, (SGRToday.com) - During a Christmas visit with members of the U.S. military while on vacation in Hawaii, President Barack Obama delivered the following remarks, as released by the White House.

The remarks were made at Marine Corps Based Hawaii, Kaneohe Bay. Full remarks can be found at whitehouse.gov. They began as follows:


"Hello, everybody!  Merry Christmas!  Mele Kalikimaka!  Happy New Year!  Happy Hanukkah!  We just want to -- hope you guys are having a great holiday.  And it is wonderful to see all of you.

     This is one of our favorite things to do every single year, because not only are we in Hawaii for Christmas, but we’re also able to say thank you on behalf of the American people.  So many families here are serving tirelessly.  And it’s not just those in uniform who serve, it’s also the spouses, the kids.  There are times where you’re missing birthdays, missing soccer games, making sacrifices."
