Date:
Location: Bagram, Afghanistan

9:08 P.M. AFST

THE PRESIDENT: We're going to be getting together. We'll be saying a few words in a little while. But it's an honor to be with you. We brought Senator Barrasso. As you know, he's a great supporter of our military services. And nobody is like you. We spent two and a half trillion since I've been here. That's a lot of money. But we rebuilt our military. It was depleted, as you know, and now it's -- I guess, the word "depletion" is about the last word we'd use, right?

PARTICIPANT: Yes, sir.

THE PRESIDENT: Because we have all great stuff.

But I want to thank you very much, and I'll be talking to you later.

But, right now, I want to have some turkey, okay? I'm going to join you for a little lunch. And thank you. We're going to also shake hands with some of the folks. So thank you all very much. What a great job you do. It's an honor to be here.

It's a long flight. That is a longer flight than you told me about -- (laughter) -- I have to tell you, John. But we love it. We would have been -- if it was five times longer, it wouldn't have mattered to me.

So thank you all very much. Thank you. (Applause.)
