"I would like to send my warm holiday wishes to all of 3/4 and all corpsmen and Marines out of Twentynine Palms, CA on behalf of Robert E. Bush Naval Hospital. Stay strong, be safe, and Happy Holidays. Thank you for all you do. I will also like to say, I love you and miss you to my husband, HM3 (AW) Christopher J. Cook. We keep you in our prayers. We all anxiously await your return in a few short months." — Elvia (Twentynine Palms, CA)

"I can't say Merry Christmas to Donald. He was killed last year, Nov. 28. He was our son. But I can tell you how he felt about the war you are fighting. He believed in what he was doing. He believed that our troops could make a difference in Iraq. And he loved his brothers and sisters of the Military. So, from us to you, keep up the fight, we are with you with our hearts and support for your courage. Have a Merry Christmas and come home safe to your families and friends." — Sue (Benton, KY)

“To Lance Cpl. Jonathan Pool: Everyone at home misses you and is praying for you. Be courageous and remember that you're one day closer to being with your new bride and family. Have a blessed Christmas and let our love be your strength.” — Mom, Dad, Jenna and Liz

“I want to give a shout out to 1/6 in Ramadi, Iraq and my husband Cpl. Taylor. We love you and can’t wait for you to be home to see your son for the 1st time. Stay safe — you are all in our prayers.” — Hailey

“My family and I would like to send our warmest holiday wishes and lots of love to my brother, Navy Corpsman Brian Simpson, who is currently serving with the Marines of the 1/6 in Ramadi, Iraq. We love you, Brian, and can't wait for you to be home. Hope you and your Marines have a safe holiday. Lots of love.” — Nikki, Mike, Alex and Matthew (Winterport, ME)

"Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all of you worldwide! May God bless you and keep you safe. Thank you for all you do and thank you to all the families who are sacrificing daily, especially during the holidays, without their loved ones, to provide us with all the wonderful things that makes America a free nation and the most beautiful place to live." — Ramirez/Sanchez family (Kissimmee, FL)

"A special blessing from a nephew who does not forget: Every day at dinner time, my 7-year-old son Angel remembers his uncles and bows his head, puts his hands together and says, 'God please bless my Tio Jr. and Tio David and bring them home safe.' Please know that you are far away but very close to our thoughts and hearts. Can't wait to see you.” — Carlos, Carol and kids

"Merry Christmas to the 1st Cav. soldiers and all the soldiers away from their loved ones back home this holiday season. Please know that we love you and thank you for sacrificing, so that we may sleep safer at home this holiday. On behalf of all the families and Americans that love and pray for you." — Vickie (Ft. Hood, Texas)

"I'm believing that grace and abundance will overshadow you this Christmas and that the coming year will exceed your wildest dreams (Eph.3.20) Enjoy and be blessed! The church people from the Berlin-Church (Germany) pray for You." — Pastor John (Berlin, Germany )

"Would you please send out a shout to my cousin Lance Cpl. Keith Fields. We are proud of our Marine, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. We love and miss you. Show them how its done in the South! Seriously, thank you to all the soldiers serving all over the world. You are all in our prayers. We will talk to you soon. Love ya." — Brenda and Family

"Even though we have no idea what your life is like 365 days over there, we appreciate what you are doing, support you and will never forget you are there. God bless you every day. MERRY CHRISTMAS." — Pamela (Illinois)

"To every man and woman who serves in the military of the United States of America: Thank you for your service. Thank you for your bravery and dedication. Above all, thank you for standing between this nation and those who would harm us all. I was born in the middle of WWII in 1943. Six of my uncles and even two cousins volunteered for service. Some served in the Pacific and some in Europe. I grew up believing the United States of America was the greatest nation that had ever existed on the face of the earth. Guess What? Today I still believe that. I still get a lump in my throat and my heart beats a little faster when I stand to sing 'The Star Spangled Banner.' We have made some mistakes and in hindsight, we did the wrong thing a few times, but this nation is still the very best on earth. You can be proud wherever you are, that your service is an effort to keep her safe for generations to come! THANK YOU! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!" — Nancy (Conyers, GA )

"We would like to send Christmas Greetings to our son John Cody Johnson — serving with the 4th US Cav — at Camp Speicher, Iraq. Merry Christmas and know our thoughts and prayers are with you and your men. Can't wait to see you safely home!" — Dad & Cheryl

"I would like to say to the troops: Thank you so much for sacrificing your lives for us. I have more hope for my children's' future, knowing there are brave, selfless people like you around to protect them. May God bless you and your families this Christmas and always!" — Melody (Hayden, AL )

"I would like to wish all of our solders and service men and women that are serving in Iraq and Afgan, a Merry Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. I want to let them know that we are thanking them every day, they are our people and loved ones. I wish that they were here at home, so they could enjoy Christmas with their families. My heart goes out to every one of them for standing up for America and its people. You are putting your lives at stake everyday for America. I want to send my condolences out to people that have lost their loved ones in the war. I pray that God will make their pathway brighter for them and their children. Merry Christmas to you all and Happy New Years. Don't give up, for we are with you all the way. There's not a day that goes by that I don't thank you all and pray for your safe returns. In the Bible book of Philippians, chapter 4, verse 13, it reads, "I can do all things through Christ which strengthened me." Just trust him, love through grace. From your American friend, may God bless you all." — Clarence

"I pray we will see a Christmas Miracle and witness a sudden turn-a-round in the Middle East. May God Bless all of you and God bless America." — Laura (Little Falls, NJ)

"To my son, Lt. Robert D. Gunning Jr., who is stationed in Al Asad, Iraq. As a mother to a son in Iraq, I want to wish him and all of the military men and women a very Merry Christmas and a safe and happy New Year. Please take care, and may God watch over all of you and keep you safe. I love you." — Joan

"At this time of year, everyone is giving gifts to loved ones. There are men and women in the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard serving all over the world giving my family a gift, even though they don't know us personally. For their gift of service, we would like to wish them the very best and God speed." — Ric, Joy and Tyler

"This is a wonderful thought for our soldiers away from home. Merry Christmas to my son, Russel Tafuri, and a Happy New Year!" — Momma Diane

"Just wanted to wish all of our Troops Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. There is no way to thank you for what you are doing for our country, Just know you and your families are in our heart and prayers everyday. Thanks again!" — Missy (Oklahoma)

"My husband Michael served for four years during Vietnam War. You who serve (in whatever part of the world) are owed a debt of gratitude, that we who stay at home can never repay. You stand up for us so that we can be safe, that we are secure. The reason we have a military is so that we can continue with the freedom that the founding fathers (and mothers) wanted all of us to have. Thank you is such a small thing, but nevertheless 'THANK YOU' for being there. Thank you for the sacrifice of your time, your dreams, even your lives. We think about you daily, pray for you all the time, and ask God's blessing on your lives and on your families. Merry Christmas to you all." — Jan (California)

"I have a cousin Lcpl Evan Sitzman serving with the 1/6 Marines in Iraq. We are so very proud of him and all the brave men and women serving our country and doing what basically is the right thing. Our heartfelt thanks go out to each and every one of them because they are all our heros. They truly make this country the home of the free and land of the brave. Merry Christmas Evan from your family in Southern Indiana." — Doreen (Indiana)

"After watching O'Reilly Factor, I was quite impressed with our truly brave and determined soldiers who feel they must finish their job. If the politicians would cease to micromanage the war, the soldiers would complete their task and come home knowing that their task was complete. We have seen politicans doing the same thing before. And that was Vietnam ... lefties are so eager to compare this war with Vietnam. God bless each and every soldier and may they return home safely. To paraphrase the Irish blessing, may God hold them safely in the palm of his hand and be their constant companion through each and every day, while they are in all the foreign shores until they reach our shores safely." — Jane

"Simply put; your sacrifice is appreciated by far more Americans than the media and politicians would ever have you believe. Thank You and Merry Christmas. The Hollis family (all 14 of us) will always be thinking of you throughout and beyond the holidays." — Michael (O'Fallon, MO)

"To all our troops in Iraq and around the world ... May Jesus bless you with great strength, power and victory over evil, where ever you are. My deepest respect and appreciation goes out to all who serve and protect the 'In God We Trust' American way of freedom and life. Empowerment for victory." — James (Montana)

"I would like to say a special thank you to our troops serving in Iraq, Afghanistan and around the world. Your sacrifices, and those of your families, are appreciated. I pray that you and your families will be safe and happy this holiday season." — Tammy

"Though I know how hard is must be to be away from your families, I wanted to SHOUT out my support and give you all a BIG THANK YOU for the sacrifices you are making in honor of our great country the good old U.S.A. Wherever you are serving, please know you are all in my heart and I wish you all a very Merry Christmas. I support you 100 percent. Love and Best Wishes." — Lu (San Francisco, CA)

"Our son Chad is in Iraq. We want to tell him we love him and how much we appreciate what all the Marines and Soldiers are doing for our freedom. Everyone of them are in our prayers all the time. Chad told us we don't realize how many times our prayers have been answered. God is still in control. America needs to wake up and realize that we need God in everything we do. Merry Christmas, and God Bless all our men and women who are fighting for our freedom." — Leecie (Lake City, FL)

“Our family wants to wish the soldiers the best for the Holiday season, and safety throughout the New Year. And thank them for their services!! You bless U.S. with your service, You take everything in stride. We send our thoughts and prayers, They go along for the ride. Our gratitude is endless, We can't thank you enough. Thanks for defending our country, We are bursting with pride! Thanks for allowing us to 'shout out!' — the Simmons family, the Fairchild family, the Aldrich family and the Sheehan family (Dallas, GA; Bloomfield, NY; Shortsville, NY; Canandaigua, NY; Hamlin, NY)
