Merry Christmas To All and Our Troops

To Our Brave Patriot Soldiers, Sailors, Marines, Airmen, Coasties, Veterans, Allies, Contractors & Families

May God bless and protect you, until you're safely home.

Service members are deployed worldwide if possible they are singing hymns, sharing good wishes, dreaming of home, and generally making the best of whatever situation they are in as they always have done this time of year.

Not that this has always been easy. In fact, there have been some very dark Christmases in our nation’s military history; from that bitter December at Valley Forge in 1777 to the massive wound-lickings following devastating December losses at Fredericksburg in 1862 and Pearl Harbor in 1941 to the terrible December siege of Bastogne in 1944, and others.

We all may have a favorite Christmas that holds a special place in our hearts and memories, maybe more then one. To those that are deployed at Christmas it takes on a whole new meaning.

I have never served in the military, but the gift to be able to go and see our troops overseas those 4 times will be as real to me today as they were then. Those visits live in my heart forever. As each of the Christmas shows finished there was always the song "Silent Night".

As we sit here with our families and friends, safe and secure let’s not forget about our brave men and women that are giving us the opportunity to do so. Take a moment to say a prayer for our troops, both those that are serving and those that have served.

Merry Christmas and a happy new year to all.

Say extra prayers this Christmas season for those who are serving America. Also for the families of those troops and contractors.

And another prayer for those who so diligently support our troops like Chrissie does.
