Far from home.
As you sit down to your holiday meal with your family, remember those
Mid-Missouri families who don’t have that special person at home this
year. Hundreds of local servicemen and women are in Iraq, Afghanistan and
Kosovo. And while the military treats them to everything from steak and
lobster right along with the turkey for their holiday meal, there’s
nothing like Mom’s pumpkin pie.
There are several Central Missouri families who are going thru yet another
holiday season without their sons who have died in the War on Terror. Like
the Deraps of Jamestown and my friends the Jim Settle family of Henley.
Ask them if they don’t think ‘Freedom isn’t Free’.
