It's got to be the hardest thing for an individual. To be 1,000's of miles from home and loved ones. I can't even begin to feel for those men and women. It has to be the hardest thing to do.
Gun control isn't about guns...it's about control. It also makes criminals out of otherwise law abiding citzens.
I make it by, just another day at work. I'll be home soon enough to my family, that's what keeps me going.
My guys are coming home on leave from the Air Force this Saturday Dec 21, for 10 days, then going back .. We'll be setting a place, and saying prayers, for those who can't be home.
Why Waltz when you can Rock-N-Roll
I see and hear so many great things here on DC and I am pleased because back in the 50s and 60s when I served we were not welcome home except by our families and not many missed or thought about us on Christmas and I am glad my son did not have to face that. I know that all my buddies who are now gone are looking down with a smile and saying thanks. Merry Christmas to all of you out there and thanks again for letting me share and may God keep his hand on your shoulder.
I always like to pull Guard duty or CQ on Christmas, because it is such a special day. I was going to keep it that way.
I am humbled.....
Don"t let stupid be your skill set....
And Shepards we shall be, for Thee, my Lord, for Thee,
Power hath descended forth from Thy hand, So that our feet may swiftly carry out thy command,
And we shall flow a river forth to Thee, And teeming with souls shall it ever be,
Thank you my friend. With great respect, this video was made.
This Christmas was one of the hardest for my wife.
Our daughter is away at boot camp in Great Lakes Chicago.
We camped out by the phone for both days... No call.
I know it's harder on my little girl (19) then it is on us.
But the only thing I can do is write to her every day to bring her spirits up.
To all the military men and women (and your families)...
.... THANK YOU! GOD BLESS YOU ALL.
