TV Greetings

My local CBS affiliate has been playing holiday messages from troops and DOD contract workers stationed overseas. The messages are all to family in Montana. I have Tivo, so I usually fast-forward through commercials, but I stop and play these messages.

It seems like a really nice thing to do–giving those military folks a chance to connect with family back home and a reminder to all of us that there are Americans stationed far away from home helping to keep us safe. A lot of them are individual soldiers or contractors, but some are whole families stationed in Europe or Asia. It’s a different life, hauling your family around the world.

Thanks to all of those folks who have stepped up and volunteered to serve!
