Merry Christmas from Afghanistan

Seasons greetings from CAAT 1, WPNS CO, 2nd Battalion 2nd Marines. (filmed on site at Alpha 1)

(As it pans across the platoon halfway through, please excuse them looking like they're watching a crucifixion; by this point they've heard the song several hundred times :)

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas from Afghanistan, oh man, it's that time of year, and the birth of Jesus doesn't seem to please the terrorists down here; I'd like to take a moment for you folks at home to make it clear; Merry Christmas from the Eastern Hemisphere.

Merry Christmas from Afghanistan, way back in the USA, You've got mistletoe and falling snow, we've got sandstorms and grenades But what the hell, it's just as well we celebrate it anyway, Merry Christmas from 5,000 miles away.

And I remember many Decembers, sitting 'round that tree, And now I'm in an outer cordon sitting 'round an IED, I've traded yams and roasted ham for a chicken noodle MRE, Merry Christmas from out here in the middle east.

So merry Christmas from Afghanistan, from our AO to yours, I'll be watching illegal DVDs and defecating out of doors, Put my pedal to the metal man, I'll settle for that medal of honor when I when the war, Single-handedly from my armored drivers door.

Yuletide salutations from our vacation in the sand, from this E-3 Lance Coolie and up the whole chain of command Between Al Qaeda, Al Jazeera, Mujahadeen, and the Taliban, It's a very merry Christmas in Afghanistan.

From south Montana, to northwest Indiana, to the shores of North Caroline, From NYC to LA's beaches and down the Mason-Dixon Line, It's that season where we're freezing, but all in all, we're doing fine, So merry Christmas from Afghanistan tonight. It's that season where we're freezing, but all in all, we're doing fine, So Merry Christmas down the Final Protection Line!

Baby Jesus certainly knows how to celebrate His birthday in war and peace. That's A LOT of birthday candles for His cake (born in 6 B.C. in Bethlehem)...Frau Vader wishes Wild Thing, Nick and Team Theodore FROHLICHE WEIHNACHTEN & GUTTES NEU JAHR 2011!
