Santa placed a copy of the new Axis & Allies: Pacific 1940 under the tree, and Young General gave the Old Warrior a copy of Scrabble Slam!, I'll say more about both in coming days. The holiday was a good one, full of food, fun and family.
But I wanted to say a small prayer of thanks and remembrance for the soldiers serving far from home this holiday. Especially for American and Coalition troops serving in Iraq and Afghanistan, but not just them. Over the entire world there are sailors on watch, soldiers on guard duty and airmen dutifully monitoring radar screens today. So it is, has been and always will be.
