Are you in search of a fresh Christmas tree but for some reason consider axes to be girly and ineffective when it comes to chopping it down? If these extremely specific circumstances apply to you, then fear not: you can absolutely blast your holiday decor free from the chains of Mother Earth.
The Department of Defense announced Tuesday that active-duty troops deployed to the U.S.-Mexico border will stay there through the holidays. Originally slated to return home on December 15, troops will now remain at their assignment through at least January 31, 2019.
It’s official: The holidays are here. This week, families will gather to share in the sights, sounds, and tastes of Christmas, along with the hustle and bustle of decorations, gifts, and holiday parties.
It's the quiet moments on deployment when the sadness, and the loneliness you feel, comes rushing in, filling the silence. Holidays give you too much time to think about how much people you love are in each others' company, and you are not.
