U.S. first lady Melania Trump thanked military members for their service and offered holiday greetings as she spent time at Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling, Joint Base Langley-Eustis, and USS George H.W. Bush.

“Looking forward to spending some time with our brave men and women in uniform today!” Trump wrote on Twitter where she also announced that she would be “visiting two military bases & an aircraft carrier to thank our service members. God Bless all those who serve in our Armed Forces #USA.”

At Joint Base Langley-Eustis in Hampton, Virginia, Trump thanked the men and women in uniform for their service.

“I’m honored to be able to say, ‘welcome home.’ And thank you for answering the call of duty,” Trump said during her speech at Langley-Eustis.

“We know that we are free because you are brave.”

On behalf of her and her husband, she said they are “forever grateful for your service,” also acknowledging the “incredible courage” of the families of those who are in the service.

“I want you all to know the president and I are so grateful and have unconditional appreciation for all that you do,” Trump said. “This administration will always stand with the men and women of the United States armed forces.”

“Merry Christmas and happy New Year to all of you, and may God bless you, your families, and the United States of America.”

The first lady also received a tour of the F-22 Raptor at Joint Base Langley-Eustis.

On Tuesday, the first lady visited Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling where she helped with the toy drive “Toys for Tots,” a program run by the U.S. Marines — she also donated “Be Best” totes to the “Toys for Tots” literacy program, as IJR Red reported.

Trump will visit the USS George H.W. Bush — one of the U.S. Navy’s nuclear-powered Nimitz-class aircraft carriers — in Norfolk, Virginia, where she will give an exclusive interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity.

The first lady’s visit in Norfolk is meaningful since the former 41st president, who the base is named after, recently died peacefully on Nov. 30 at the age of 94.
