KANOEHE BAY, HAWAII:  President Barack Obama called the six U.S. troops killed in Afghanistan on Monday “outstanding” and “brave” as he thanked American service members on Friday during a Christmas Day visit to Marine Corps Base Hawaii in Kanoehe Bay.

“Even though we have been able to reduce the number of folks we’re deploying to places like Iraq and Afghanistan, there are still folks over there every single day and it’s still dangerous as we saw this past week with the outstanding, brave men and women who were killed,” Obama said.
