A Different Kind Of Christmas Poem

I've seen this before, but it is a great reminder of how we are free because of some awesome young men and women who have given up thier chance to be with family and friends so we can feel safe being with ours.



Find a way to make them feel loved and thought of.  Contact your local VFW or American Legion.  Look into military support groups that can be found by Googling.  Ask them for a name and address of someone you can send a card or letter.  It's colder than a mother-in-laws heart 'over there' so think about sending them socks, hand warmers, beef jerky...stuff from home that they never see.

That's all! Carry on!
