Local troops react to Obama's troop surge announcement

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - The timetable to send more American troops to Afghanistan is expected to be put on the fast-track, when President Obama announces the details of a troop surge Tuesday night. And with San Diego being a military community, local service members will be affected by the troop surge.

White House officials say 30,000 more servicemembers could be in Afghanistan by Christmas.

News 8's Doug Kolk reports from Camp Pendleton with reaction.
