    Merry Christmas to everyone in the states. I had the chance at getting to the computer tonight, and after emailing home my wishes, I thought I would give everyone here a great Christmas wish. Anyway, I hope peak went well for everyone, and everyone had a great Christmas! We were treated to Turkey MRE's tonight, which really are the same as eating cardboard, but Turkey is Turkey! Anyway, gotta run, very early in the morning here, and things are starting to get ready......Merry Christmas everyone!

    Christmas away from home is difficult especially in a situation such as yours.
    Please be careful, safe and prudent.
    We hope you come home soon.

    Thank you for your commitment. Sounds like the Turkey I cooked for you made it there. My relatives loved it as much here as you did there. Take care and God Bless.....

    Merry Xmas to you too, sir!
    I hope all is as good as can be for you and yours.
    There's a driver from my center that's been in Iraq for at least a year and a half. I don't know him very well, but he was always a nice guy. I haven't heard much about him since he left. I guess no news is good news. So at least there's some UPS brothers keeping you company out there.
    Thanks for your sacrifices, and good luck!

    How long are you over there for? Where are you stationed? Good luck and look forward to hearing from you in the future. Stupid, stupid, stupid question, but, obviously UPS doesn't deliver there?

    Be careful out there in the "Sandbox"! This is the term many of the reservists use describing Iraq.
