Merry Christmas from Camp Victory, Iraq

24 December 2004

A blessed and Merry Christmas everyone! Although Christmas is one of the most difficult days to be away from home, I take comfort in the family and friends that I share it with here at ITT in Baghdad at Camp Victory, Iraq. Thank you all for your constant positive thoughts and prayers, email, letters and packages. See you all in another month.


Luke 2:1-14
In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world. (This was the first census that took place while Quirinius was governor of Syria.) And everyone went to his own town to register.

So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David. He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child. While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.

And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. An Angel of the Lord appeared to them and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. Today in the city of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find the baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger."

Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests."

THANK YOU very much for your persoanl efforts in the war; even though I do not approve of the politics behind it all I uplift you all, Whoa Whoa!.
Merry Christmas! Thanks for all you do!
