We sometimes complain about the stress of the holidays, I imagine they would trade in a heart beat. Thanks.

Tears and a tight throat as I watch this wonderful video and the men and wemon in the video. Thinking about them at Christmas. And their families who won't have them home. Saying silent prayers for them all. thanks so much for sharing this...debbie

Hi Tracy, We definitely don't EVER need to forget those families who have a loved one in the service and away from home during the holidays... It's so hard ---probably moreso on the family than on the soldier... God Bless them ALL.
Merry Christmas.
Hugs,
Betsy

Hello,
Stopped by here being nosey just because you were nosey too. And now I am crying because that video was my son last year. Thank goodness he will be home for Christmas this year! I've read some of your previous posts and we have something in common, writing IEP's and doing the endless paperwork from home. I feel your pain!

Thank you for sharing this great story. Most tend to get so wrapped up in holidays for the wrong reasons. It is hard for anyone being in the service away from home, but really bad for those that have children.
