“Please-Don’t forget the veterans both (Active and Retired) who are far from their homes serving their country still in many ways Say a prayer for those who have lost their life in support of motherland America and those countries who we help!
“My idea of Christmas, whether old-fashioned or modern, is very simple: loving others. Come to think of it, why do we have to wait for Christmas to do that?” ― Bob Hope

Serving in Viet Nam in 1970 I came across an album from an unknown songwriter at the time named Mac Davis. One song in particular that really moved me was a song called “Home”. Made me real homesick. Many years have past. I am thankful to all who sacrificed for our country.
No where could I find this song or lyrics on the internet. I dedicate this song and video to all the veterans who have served in the past and are serving our country today. God Bless them all.
“Home” – Mac Davis
And every night they lie awake
And dream of Momma’s chocolate cake
And wonder if there’ll be a tomorrow
And will they ever see their home and their family
Oh will they ever be back home, Oh
And boys who never learned to pray
Look to the heaven’s everyday
And stumble through a simple little prayer
And ask the Lord above
To send them home to the ones they love
Oh God I hope they make it home
And everyday some young boy dies
And in the night some young girl cries
He’ll never hear his baby’s laughter
He’ll never ever see his home and his family
But I guess he’s finely free
And at last he’s on his way back home, Oh
When we recall Christmas past, we usually find that the simplest things – not the great occasions – give off the greatest glow of happiness.” “-Bob Hope”
