WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama has thanked the troops during an inaugural ball honoring the military, and says their nation is behind them.
Obama appeared at the Commander in Chief Ball on Monday night and spoke to several troops in Afghanistan by teleconference. The crowd at the ball cheered the troops overseas. Obama told them the biggest cheer he got during his inaugural speech to the crowd on the National Mall was when he spoke about _ quote _ "the extraordinary men and women in uniform" who are keeping the country strong.
He told them they should know that _ quote _ "You will be on our minds tonight and every single night until our mission in Afghanistan is completed." He promised them they would get the equipment and support they need.
