So very true!!!
My son is on a nuke sub full of Tomahawk cruise missles somewhere on the other side of the planet; and I was so happy to get a short "Merry Christmas" email from him this morning when they surfaced somewhere for a "steel beach" to let each of them get out on deck and send a quick message home through their secure satellite link.
Bless all of our soldiers who are not having much of a Christmas themselves to ensure that we can all enjoy celebrating it back home in any manner we choose.
God speed and Merry Christmas, brave warriors - most of us deeply appreciate your sacrifice, and we pray for your safe return soon.
We remember them, we pray for their safe journey, we hope for their quick return to your loving arms. To each thank you for your sacrifice for us.
