Away from home for the holidays

By Remy Benoit

I have been talking with some of you about being away from home for the holidays in strange lands, in combat zones. I suggested that those of you who have "been there" and know how it feels might want to share your stories with others who are in that place now. It might help them get through emotionally and physically.

You are invited to share your stories with those in active service now to help them through the holiday season knowing that others have made it through, that they are not the first, and won't be last, to know what it feels like to be away from home for the holidays.

Whatever your war, wherever you were stationed, how did you make it through the holidays, your birthday, anniverary, whatever special days—what memories—bitter, sweet, or, indeed, bittersweet—can you share with those in far away places now?

If you were the one here on the home front with your loved one stationed far away, how did you make it through?
