“Even though our service members stationed around the world can’t be with us this holiday season, messages like these are reminders that they are always in our thoughts,” Simon said. “We are proud of their service and we are praying for their safe return. I encourage all that are able to send a warm greeting from home to our service members stationed across the world this holiday season.”
