Soldiers at Bagram Air Force base in Afghanistan got a surprise from their Commander-In-Chief this Memorial Day weekend.
President Barack Obama made an unannounced visit Sunday to visit U.S. forces.
He spoke to troops at a rally and thanked them for their service.
He also spoke on the security agreements that were made with Afghanistan. This is the President’s fourth trip to the country since May of 2012.
