Christmas Dedication to the troops of the United States Military
Many will not make it home this Christmas. The song, “I’ll be home for Christmas” brings a lump in the throat. Some of our military will stay where they are…in the desert or the mountains…watching…knowing that back home there will be those who are decorating the tree; eating the Christmas dinner; opening presents….without him/or her. It is a hardness that they endure..but it does not make it any easier.
There are troops who have come home; sick in body or sometimes in the mind. Memories are difficult. So much change since he left to serve. Some wonder the streets of towns as part of the homeless…having their service and dedication to country unnoticed. We want to say to all the troops at this Christmas...you are noticed. You are our heroes. You are missed. We pray for your safe return.
