3 minute read

Vice President Mike Pence and Second Lady Karen Pence spent time this Christmas season hosting members of the United States Armed Forces, the Secret Service, and their families at their home at the Naval Observatory to celebrate the holidays and thank them for their incredible service to the nation. The Vice President and the Second Lady are grateful for the sacrifices these families make throughout the year to protect our freedoms and ensure the safety and security of the American people.

During the month of December, the Pence family welcomed more than 2,000 guests into the Vice President’s Residence. The photos below are some of our favorites from the past month.
