Christmas time is difficult for both the soldiers and their families as they are divided on different sides of the world. The soldiers continue to rebuild a country for people in a land so far away, working feverishly in the dust, protecting their faces with scarves.
While parents and familes miss them and yearn to hold them. (yet supporting the mission - standing behind the troops - supporting them) Care packages with gifts sent overseas, but not able to see the joy on their faces as they open them.
(I made a promise to my son that we will not have our Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners until the day of his return. )
