WASHINGTON, May 24 (UPI) -- President Barack Obama apologetically shook the hand of a U.S. Marine in Washington after having failed to return the service member's salute.

Obama was boarding Marine One Friday for a trip to Annapolis, Md., when he failed to return a salute given to him by the Marine on duty at the steps to the helicopter, The Hill reported Friday.

The president soon realized his error and exited the helicopter to shake the Marine's hand and engage in a brief conversation, a White House pool report said.
