Holiday Greetings from the Armed Forces

Each year around this time, a media crew for the Army-Air Force Hometown News enables servicemen and women from around the globe to deliver a personalized video greeting to their loved ones. These greetings are distributed to broadcast stations local to the hometowns of service personnel.

As a service to our hard-working men and women of the Armed Forces, is making the videos sent to Region 8 available online via streaming video.  This means relatives and friends near and far, anywhere in the world, can now see these personalized greetings by accessing the Internet. (At least a 128 KB, broadband connection is highly recommended)

At this time all of us from throughout Region 8, would like to extend our heartfelt thanks and gratitude to all the brave, diligent men and women of all branches of our Armed Forces, serving throughout the world.

And, we extend huge thank you's to their respective families, who must make sacrifices as well, with the separation of loved ones on active duty, especially during this Holiday Season. The dedicated service of your loved ones keeps our country free!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to Each and Everyone!
