Christmas time is just around the corner. A time of the year when we love to be surrounded by family and friends . Overindulged with food and over spending on gifts that we dont really need. A time of great joy, lights, decorations, love and peace. A special time for family. We take all this for granted and it may not even cross our minds that there are men and women on far flung shores looking down the sights of a weapon instead of looking at a decorated Christmas tree. Guys and gals counting grenades instead of
Christmas gifts under that tree. Their ''sing song'' of Christmas carols is the artillery passing overhead or the ''thump'' of B-52 bombs on some distant hill side. Their ''Christmas feast'' will be an MRE of turkey giblets and powered gravy and potatoes topped off with a broken cookie or maybe two. It will keep you alive but it sure aint like like Momma use to make. Ask any of them where they would love to be over Christmas and probably to a person they would wish to be home with family and friends but ask them if they would abandon their friends and brothers in arms to be home with family and I would guess that almost to a person they would choose to stay and defend that person they know like a brother. That person they have shared a last smoke with or a bag of M&M's. That person that they would risk their life for and know that they would do the same in return. Ask them about the bond of battle and you would find that it is stronger than most any bond ever forged my man.

This Christmas when we set to the feast with all our family and friends let us pray a special prayer for our armed forces so far away. Let us pray a special thank you to them for their sacrifice to us and this great nation. Let us pray in that same prayer that it is our wish that they be Home for Next Christmas. Each and every one and that all would be home to share the Next Christmas with family and friends.

God bless our troops and bring them home soon ..

Me again .
