President Obama makes a memorable phone call

Two Army captains had to move their wedding ceremony so President Obama could play golf at their wedding venue are taking the change in stride. 

The president only learned later he had caused the wedding to be moved to another close by location in Hawaii. He wanted to reach out to them. So he called them and said, "Anyway, listen congratulations on your wedding. I feel terrible no body told us. I hope the wedding went okay anyway". 

Natalie Heimel and her husband, Edward, say they had been warned of the possibility of Obama playing golf at their wedding venue, so they knew the stakes.  

The two soldiers say the whole thing truly was a blessing in disguise, and now have a lasting memory about the president calling them on their wedding day.
