Tonight as many people across the world wrap one last gift, and children hang stockings and place plates of cookies and milk out for Santa Claus with hopes that every thing on their Christmas wish list will be under the tree in the morning. As you travel to see family or friends, stay safe and remember those who cannot make it home this year and those who will never come home again.
Please remember there are families out there whose only wish is to have their loved one home for Christmas. It doesn't matter whether you agree with the war or not. Remember the soldiers, their honor, their dignity. Whether you celebrate Christmas, Solstice, Kwanzaa, Hanukkah, something else or nothing else, remember the soldiers who voluntarily sacrifice their lives and their holidays so that you can celebrate them however you wish.
