PPR wishes you a Merry Christmas...

I remember Christmas in Kuwait 5 years ago this week...pretty hard being away from your family no matter where you are at...for those folks spending it away with the threat of mortars, rockets and IED's its even suckier than that.  We were lucky, Christmas at AJ was lonely but bearable.  We even had a local Kuwaiti family come and give gift bags to hundreds of troops there the week of Christmas, to include a new prayer rug for each of us!! A little funny considering they circumstances, but here was a Kuwaiti citizen who obviously remembered what US troops did for him and his country in 1991 giving back what he and his family could (given the guy was loaded, as are a lot of Kuwaitis attached to the royal family).  A lot of guys tossed the rug but I have kept mine as a reminder that we are all one people in the fight against extremist terrorism, despite our religious differences.

Oh yeah, PPR forgot to mention those guys and gals in Afghanistan, Djibouti, Qatar and other places...Merry Christmas to all of you in theater, just now beginning Christmas day...stay safe this year...
