I came across this Christmas poem written by a solider named Lance Corporal James M. Schmidt, and wanted it to share it with families who perhaps have someone serving in the Military, and may not be together this Christmas.

As the rest of us sit down with family and friends this holiday season, it’s very important to remember those who are protecting our freedom, and giving up the comfort and pleasure of being with their loved ones in order to serve our country. For that, we say thank you, and Merry Christmas wherever you are.

Please enjoy this poem, and feel free to share it with others who might be in the same situation.
