POTUS spoke to five units deployed from around the world representing the branches of the armed forces. Pooler has asked for the names of the troops who addressed the president.
In talking about the different branches of the military, POTUS mentioned the Space Force. “We don’t have that represented yet, but that will be very soon. … That’s going to be very exciting.”
“I hope every member of our military will feel the overwhelming gratitude of our nation.”
One soldier asked the president what he bought the first lady for Christmas. “That’s a tough question,” he said. “I got her a beautiful card. … A lot of love. We love our family, and we love each other. We’ve had a great relationship, hopefully like you do with your spouses.”
“I’m still working on a Christmas present. There’s a little time left. Not much, but a little time left.”
