President Obama continues his trip through Southern California today. Tuesday night he chatted up "Tonight Show" host Jay Leno on everything from the economy to Russian relations.

This morning, he heads down to Camp Pendleton in San Diego County where he'll speak to military members and their families. He's expected to thank them for their service, but Navy veteran Robert Contreras hopes the president will also address challenges facing those who've returned from war.

Contreras served three tours in Iraq and is now pursuing a bachelor's degree at UCLA.
