Yesterday President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump visited Marines at the Washington D.C. Marine Barracks.
They were there to celebrate service members and give them desserts for Thanksgiving.
“Together, we will honor those who defend us. We will cherish those who protect us. And we will celebrate the amazing heroes who keep America safe and strong and proud and free,” Trump said. “To every veteran and military family across our land, I want to express the eternal gratitude and thanks of our entire Nation.”
