COMING UP:Share Opener Variant 2



The toughest calls I have to make are the calls where this happens. Soldiers are killed, it's a very difficult thing. Now it gets to a point where, you make four or five of them in one day. It's a very, very tough day, for me that's by far the toughest.
So, the traditional way of you look at President Obama and other presidents, most of them didn't make calls, a lot of them didn't make calls. I like to call when it's appropriate, when I think I'm able to do it. They have made the ultimate sacrifice, so generally I would say that I like to call, I'm going to be calling them.
I want a little time to pass, I'm going to be calling them, I have as you know since I've been president I have. But in addition, I actually wrote letters individually to the soldiers we're talking about, and they're gonna be going out either today or tomorrow. Yes?
