Holidays away from home

I may be spending the holiday in the office, but at least I get to go home at the end of my shift and see my family. For some people, that’s not an option.

Today in the Daily Item, is the story of families who are dealing with family members deployed overseas.

Sunday night, I visited with the Laubachs, whose son Bryan is on his fifth holiday deployment. Bryan’s father, Murray, was proud to show the military photo of his son showing Bryan’s military service ribbons:

Bryan is a National Guardsman serving in Kuwait and has been in the military for about 25 years, his mother said.

Bryan’s dedication, and the dedication of all our military men and women, is something to think about this holiday.

Have a Merry, Merry Christmas everybody!
