I know...

...that I already said I won't be posting anymore this holiday season, but I just wanted to share something that is near and dear to my heart, although it is completely non-WoW related.

I know there is a lot of anti-military sentiment going on around the world right now. I know that there are a lot of people who flat out hate us, and everything that we do. I'm just here to tell you that it's okay. We don't mind. We're here so you don't have to be.

There are a lot of us, myself included, that are stationed overseas, and will not be able to make it home for the holidays to see our fiances, our wives, our children. So be thankful for what you have, and while you're home, enjoying your WoW, or asleep on Christmas Eve, still feeling that small twinge of excitement left over from your childhood, remember us. Because while you might be savoring that cup of hot chocolate tomorrow, we'll be waking up to lace up our boots and go back to work defending you and everything you love.

I just wanted to share that.

If you're interested in supporting your troops this season, please visit MSNBC.com for more information on how you can.

Again, happy holidays everyone.

Silly people! For me not agreeing with the political decision to send troops in, doesn't mean being anti-military. The way I see it, those troops don't have a say where they go, they don't get to pick and choose. Have a Happy Holiday :)

Stay safe and happy Holidays. I too have been overseas during this time of year and know how it feels, once in Korea and once in Saudi. Thank you for your service.

Take care. I have a prot warrior friend stationed overseas. I hate the wars, but love the troops.

Thank you.

Hulan is right, whether or not anyone agrees with the decisions about where you get sent, its not your doing. You have a job to do and you are doing it to the best of your ability!

Sannhet, safe and happy holidays to you and your fellow soldiers. I also really enjoy your posts!

Good luck out there man and happy holidays to you too. You guys really are doing an awesome job. I know its very hard work.

btw, as a non-american, I can tell you the sentiment out there in that wonderful country called "international" is not anti-military, its anti "fool-of-a-president-for-many-years"
