I would like to extend a Merry Christmas to all and a very Happy New Year!
In this season, please remember the troops. The Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard. All of them are sacrificing their freedom, whether it is two years, or thirty plus. Even if they never go to war, they volunteered to fight for this nation and our freedom.
I thank all of you men and women of the Armed Forces of the United States of America for your courage, candor and commitment to all.
