Honolulu, Hawaii (CNN) – President and Mrs. Obama left their vacation rental home in Hawaii for over an hour to make a Christmas Day visit to Marines stationed at the U.S. Marine base on Oahu.

“Hi guys, Merry Christmas,” the president said as he entered the mess hall where Marines and their families were enjoying their Christmas dinner. Casually dressed, the Obamas went from table to table to say hello, shake hands, and ask where everyone was from. At one point the president said “I’m proud of you guys,” and could be heard thanking the Marines for their service and saying he understood how tough it was to be away from their loved ones on the holiday.
