Subject: A Military Christmas Poem
While sitting at my desk working, I received an email from a fellow co-worker that had this poem written out. I wanted to share it with each and every state assembly board and ask that you post this on your social media and state assembly websites to pay homage to our men and women in uniform during this holiday season.
My wish is that every military man and woman could spend this holiday season wrapped in the arms of their loved ones, but many sacrifice this time to stand watch over us and protect the freedoms that we enjoy today. If you would please repost this poem to thank our military men and women during this Christmas Season.
