I want to take this opportunity to thank you, the most special audience in the world, the men, women, and families of the US military. It truly is your service which has allowed this nation to remain so special since its inception. What you all do and sacrifice day-in-day-out is amazing.
To all of you far from home today, I salute you! Know that your sacrifice does not go unnoticed. While this is the first Christmas in my adult life that I’m no longer a military member the memories of missed Christmases are still fresh. The one that comes to mind is the time during Desert Storm when I and the other members of my aircrew had hot dogs for Christmas dinner at the Ramstein AB Rec Center because nothing else was open.
Take a look at this Christmas Poem from a different perspective, I’ve seen it before and just love it.
2012 In Review
As we wrap up the year I want to say thanks for your interest and support this past year. I’ve received so many messages saying thanks for the site. I’m so glad that in some small way the site has been able to fulfill it’s mission of helping my military brethren out with their vacation planning.
