A Soldier Is A Gift

As we celebrate Christmas, and we open our gifts,
we realize what priceless gifts a soldier gives to our country —
the gifts of patriotism, service, and deep dedication to our nation.


As we feast on a variety of fine Christmas delicacies,
we acknowledge that a soldier personifies a variety of fine qualities:
courage, good character, honor, fortitude amidst hardship,
persistence in subduing evil, and bravery in the face of danger.


A soldier is a cut above the rest of us,
doing jobs we could not or would not do.
While we are surrounded by Christmas comforts,
we remember soldiers in places we would not want to be,
bringing the gift of adaptability to any situation,
no matter how harsh or difficult.


As we "ooh" and "aah" over the Christmas lights and shiny ornaments
we recognize that a soldier gives us the most cherished gift of all,
the shining light of freedom.


At Christmas, let us wrap our hearts and minds
around our treasured soldiers.
May they understand how very much their service means to us.
Let us send the Christmas gifts of love, respect and admiration
to our steadfast, loyal, magnificent warriors
and their essential civilian support staff.


They themselves are the most precious Christmas gift of all,
our protectors — our soldiers.


By Joanna Fuchs

This time of the year, especially, I want to thank all our service personnel past and present... and their families, for on Christmas morning I will be with my family due to your service in maintaining my freedom.

Merry Christmas to my son-in-law Specialist E-4 Kyle Criss. Kyle, I'm proud to have you as a member of my family. Thanks for the picture!!

Donna, thanks for that post! & thanks to all that serve or have done so. I spent 20yrs 23days in the USAF, from Nov 1957-Dec 1977. Was a few tough times but enjoyed every minute of it (not sure I can say the same for my wife tho ). Been retired now longer than I was in but still try to keep up with the 'happenings', & visit the local AFB every month or so. Regardless of what some folks say, the young people in the military now are the finest generation of American patriots ever...
