This video is quite simply a Christmas card from our five military services to all of us. In it you will see and hear singers and choruses representing the Army, Air Force, Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard, doing a rendition of a well known Christmas carol.
The Veterans Site shares this greeting from our military with all of you who support and honor our military every day of every year. Our support is deeply appreciated by our soldiers, sailors, airmen, Marines, and Coastguardsmen and women.
This is a way for them to say thank you to all of us.
As we know, we still have thousands of troops stationed around the world, many of them directly in harm’s way. We must never forget them and the sacrifices they make every day for us. But it is especially hard for both them and their families to be so far away at this time of the year.
If you know any active duty service men or women, please remember them at this time by sending them some kind of greeting. Mail call at this time of year is as important as anything for them. And offer your support to their families who wait and pray for their return.
The Veterans Site sends its best wishes and prayers to all who are serving in the U.S. Military at this time, especially for those who stand the watch and patrol the wires protecting us from those who wish us and the innocent of the world harm.
