3. Beautiful people with beautiful hearts, she! The Obamas and the

Obama Admin takes cares of our troops and appreciates them when they're Veterans too. Unlike the republicons who voted to take away SNAP benefits from struggling military families.

President Obama said "Mele Kailikimaka" in the vid!

4. "It's our turn to step up and show our gratitude for the military families who have given us so..

Much".. Mrs Obama

"Among the troops Obama called Tuesday were those wounded over the weekend during a mission to evacuate Americans from South Sudan. Four troops were injured in that effort, but the White House has said they are in stable condition.

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel also offered his holiday wishes to troops by phone, calling military members stationed in Afghanistan on Wednesday, the Pentagon said. And Vice President Joe Biden and his wife, Jill, paid a visit to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Md., where they visited patients and families. The hospital treats many military members wounded in war.

Mrs. Obama did not speak publicly during the stop at the Marine base, but in a Christmas video message released Wednesday, she said now that more troops are home from wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the nation must find new ways to give back.

"It's our turn to step up and show our gratitude for the military families who have given us so much,"
she said.

In their Christmas message, Obama and first lady Michelle Obama reflected on the lessons they said their family draws from the birth and life of Jesus. The president urged Americans to carry forward those lessons by volunteering at a soup kitchen, buying gifts for kids in need, or organizing food and clothing drives."
