As a nation, we have just passed our annual
celebration of a National Day of Thanksgiving. There is much to be thankful
for. In an election year, threatened to be disrupted and influenced
by terrorist activity, the American people were uninterrupted as they
cast their votes. A glance at the evening news will demonstrate that
the same thing cannot be said for other countries around the world.
We can be so very thankful for the freedoms
we have, and for the men and women around the world using their skills,
as well as risking their lives to keep this nation free. The holiday
season is a wonderful time to remind these men and women in our military
that they have gifted us, and their sacrifices are not taken lightly.
Please consider making the holidays brighter
for the men and women serving our country by gifting them with a card
or note of encouragement. Also, our troops need our spiritual and emotional
support on an ongoing basis. Cards and letters are appreciated year
