May your family surround you as you celebrate the Joy of Christmas. If members of your family are defending America in Iraq, Afghanistan, and South Korea or in active service and away from you, rest assured they will be in our prayers. We salute every member of our Armed Forces and are grateful for their service.

Merry Christmas.
