Brian Williams from NBC emailed to me something for the troops. Brian is a Great American.
I was in Afghanistan about two months ago, and as usual the best part of the trip were the Americans in uniform who we met along the way. I think about all of you every day. I tell my civilian friends about you, and about what I’ve seen. They all know that you are the people I admire most. We toasted all of those deployed overseas at our Thanksgiving table, and we will on Christmas Day and on New Year’s Eve. I appreciate your service, and we appreciate our freedom.
We owe you all a staggering debt.
For now, Happy Holidays and the blessings of the season to you all.
