The holidays are wonderful for us that are home with our families, but there are thousands of troops overseas who do not get that luxury every year. Regardless, they must make do the best they can and try to enjoy the holidays a little bit. This video shows what a Christmas parade in Afghanistan looks like. It’s a great sight to see to try and a great morale booster for troops who can feel pretty bummed being away around the holidays.
A great way to support the troops during the holiday season is to send gift packages and letters. Doing so can definitely lift the spirits a of our soldiers during this tough time. We all want to wish them a very Merry Christmas, and a safe one also.
