According to the White House, the president "thanked each of them for their service and sacrifice and wished them and their families a Happy Thanksgiving."

The first family carried out another Thanksgiving tradition Wednesday and participated in a service project at the Capital Area Food Bank. They were joined by members of the Oregon State men's basketball team as they packed and distributed bags of food to children and seniors by the food bank.

Before the service project, Obama took part in another tradition - he pardoned Cobbler, a turkey who was spared from a Thanksgiving feast.
