As we come to Christmas Day, I want to wish each and every one a Merry Christmas and a safe and happy holiday season with your loved ones.
Sometime tomorrow, please take a minute and give thanks for those who are defending us far from home, be it sitting on the 38th Parallel in Korea, Helmand province in Afghanistan, or at sea around the world or standing watch in any of the innumerable locations where our military serves. They won’t have the comfort of family, and maybe not much of a Christmas Dinner (but the mess halls WILL try).
Remember too those LEOs, Firefighters, EMTs and those manning the hospitals who will get home a day late, but may just save your life while they are at work.
Crucis has a post up HERE about family traditions, and the impact on his life. For us, I think Christmas Eve is going to turn into a tradition of going to the range 🙂
