Merry Christmas to Our Troops

I would like to take a few seconds to wish our troops here at home or serving abroad a very Merry Christmas and a safe, happy, and healthy New Year.

Your sacrifices and the sacrifices of your families from your wives and mothers to your kids and the jobs you do here at home - are not forgotten. They are appreciated and are not forgotten, regardless of the way our country may act towards the war you fight.

Whether you are celebrating here at home with your family and loved ones, in a tent camp, convoy, while completing a mission, or being served by the fantastic USO, please know you are being thought of today. You are prayed for, appreciated, and silently thanked every day.

To our vets who are not taken care of as they should be (and even to those who are): Thank you for your service. Thank you for putting those of us here at home in front of those most important to you and doing a duty I for one know I could never do.

If you know someone in the military, at your earliest chance - please thank them for their service. If you know someone who served at one time - please thank them for their service.

If you enjoy the freedoms this country has (which are rapidly being taken away), please thank those who fought most to give it to us.

Merry Christmas to everyone, but a special nod to those who are or have served.
Blessings and safe travels to all in the new year!
