President proud of support for military

News 5 Anchor Rob Quirk sat down with President Obama in Washington today, with questions about the payroll tax, the economy and support for soldiers.

In one portion of the interview President Obama talked about our military.  "We must not forget the men and women who gave their lives, tens of thousands wounded, all those missed birthday parties, missed soccer games and missed dinners because folks were on their second or third deployment. We should not take that for granted. It is an extraordinary testimony to the bravery, courage, dedication and patriotism of our soldiers.

More of the interview will air at 5, 6 and 10 on News 5.
