For all the men and women overseas, and their families this is a hard, bittersweet time of year. I know many of you are veterans, or have loved ones in the military.
My brother is Commander, I started to say where from but I don't suppose I ought to be making his personal itinerary known. He just left Kuwait for Iraq, next stop Afghanistan, followed by the Horn of Africa. I did not know about our task force in Qatar, until I got his letter yesterday. He is going to visit his troops. One brigade is going home in time for Christmas, while another is going to Iraq in time for Christmas, and will stay a year. My brother has a wife young children at home who will miss him very much at Christmas. I am feeling really uneasy about his travels, and I sure hope he and rest of our hundreds of thousands of military folks make it home safe and sound - and soon.
