NANTUCKET, Mass. (AP) ó President Joe Biden on Thursday wished Americans a happy and closer-to-normal Thanksgiving, the second celebrated in the shadow of the coronavirus pandemic, in remarks welcoming the resumption of holiday traditions by millions of families ó including his own.

ďAs we give thanks for what we have, we also keep in our hearts those who have been lost and those who have lost so much,Ē the president said in a videotaped greeting recorded with first lady Jill Biden at the White House before their trip to Nantucket, Massachusetts, for the holiday.

On the island, the Bidens visited the Coast Guard station at Brant Point to meet virtually with U.S. servicemembers from around the world and personnel at the station. ďIím not joking when I say Iím thankful for these guys,Ē the president said when asked what he was thankful for, referring to the Coast Guard members standing ramrod straight before him on the grounds as he departed.

Reporters were kept out of the room for Bidenís virtual remarks, apparently because of tight space in the building. Well-wishers waved and cheered as Bidenís motorcade navigated the islandís narrow paved and cobblestone streets to and from the Coast Guard compound.
