ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION The lunch patrons of Molly Malone's, an Irish-themed bar in Washington, D.C., were surprised Tuesday when President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden arrived to join members of the U.S. military for lunch. Obama and Biden were joined by members of the Coast Guard, Army, Marine Corps, Navy, and Air Force. The White House said the meeting was organized to allow the President and Vice President to thank the service members, and hear directly from enlisted troops and junior officers before Obama and Biden were due to meet with Combatant Commanders and military leadership later in the day.
