Take a Moment To Say Thanks

Many of us take everyday moments in our lives for granted – from family dinners and bed time stories to connecting with friends and family, or walks with the dog. But these are the very moments that our troops and their families miss due to their commitment and service to our country.
 
 
Here's a Youtube Video from Singer / Songwriter and Activist Danny Rongo asks you to PLEASE REMEMBER OUR TROOPS this holiday season. Please forward this video to one and all so we continue to honor the men and women protecting our freedom.
 
 
Here's another YoutubeChristmas song for the troops written by Nicki Park and sung by Melodie Crittenden.
