Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from the President and First Lady:
The President and First Lady wish Americans a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays in a special weekly address. They celebrate the values of the season, and in that spirit of gratitude honor all the brave men and women in uniform fighting to keep us safe, as well as the families that stand by them. The President and First Lady ask that everyone take time this holiday season to visit JoiningForces.gov, and find out how to give back to the troops, veterans, and military families in your community.
"So on behalf of Malia, Sasha, Bo, Sunny, and everyone here at the White House -- Merry Christmas. May God bless our troops and their families. And may God bless you all with peace and joy in the year ahead."
