This was posted on the family forum but I wanted to make sure our veterans saw it as well. You also deserve our thanks and I'm sure you will receive it at HolidayMessages along with our active troops. I've started a group http://groups.yahoo.com/group/holidaymessages/ where those who wish can post thanks to our troops who are giving up their holidays at home on our behalf. The group and posting are open to all. I've been sending packages overseas all month and have included the link in the Christmas cards. So hopefully some of our soldiers with internet access will be able to read your words. This is a simple way to convey your support for the troops, whether or not you support military policy. Thanks for reading and for posting!
