As many of us prepare to open presents and sit down with our families for Christmas dinner, everyone (regardless of your stance/political affiliation) should take a minute to think about the people that are defending this great country in places like Iraq, Afghanistan, Djibouti and many other places across the globe.
Take a minute to think about the sacrifice they’re making as well as the ultimate sacrifice many have made while protecting our interests around the world. Tomorrow as I watch my kids open their presents and I sit down to eat
with my family, I *will* be thinking of my friend Wil and his fellow Marines who are on the sharp edge of the sword in Iraq.
So, keep our troops in your thoughts tomorrow (and every day) and have a very Merry Christmas.
