Remembering Our Troops This Christmas

Here is a lovely letter from a soldier to his little girl, one long-ago Christmas Day.

When say your Christmas prayers, please spare a thought for the men and women in uniform who are sacrificing so much for our freedom and security (to help even more, look into Soldier's Angels in the New Year). It's hard not to hear the words to "I'll Be Home for Christmas" -- knowing its history as an American favorite during World War II -- without feeling a lump in the throat. May God bless each one of them and their families this Christmas, and always.

And God bless us every one.

Interested parties can also send a "get well" or "Happy New Year" card to the Red Cross at Walter Reed Hospital in Washington, D.C. and their staff will see that a wounded military person, who gets little or no mail, receives it.
