Today, the President and the First Lady visited the United States Coast Guard Station Brant Point to virtually meet with service members from around the world to thank them for their service and wish them a happy Thanksgiving.

The service members meeting the President and the First Lady represent the six branches of the military (Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force, Space Force, and Coast Guard).

Shortly before the motorcade departed for United States Coast Guard Station Brant Point,  the president’s grand daughter Naomi Biden, was seen on a bike ride with her fiancé, Peter Neal and a secret service agent. It seemed like they had stopped to wait for the motorcade to depart before crossing the street.

The Bidens spoke with members of the Coast Guard in Nantucket after a virtual Thanksgiving event with other service members. The President handed out challenge coins while the First Lady shook hands.

“I’m not joking when I say I’m thankful for these guys – I’m thankful for them, and everybody, I mean it from the bottom of my heart,” the president said when asked what he’s thankful for. 

The president said he’s watched the coast guard all over the world. 
“I’ve watched them in the South China Sea, I’ve watched them in Afghanistan, Iraq. I’ve watched them in  South America…Wherever they are. People wonder what America is? [Look and see them. That’s who they see. They don’t see us here. They see them. It makes me proud.” 

Earlier this morning, President Biden and the First Lady called Al Roker while watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade from Nantucket.

On Friday, Jill and Joe Biden will be going to the Christmas tree lighting ceremony in Nantucket. 

The Bidens are spending Thanksgiving at the home of David Rubenstein, co-founder of Carlyle and will return to Washington D.C. on Sunday, November 28, 2021.
