It’s Christmas time! As the year comes to an end, we prepare to bid it farewell by celebrating with our friends and loved ones, but unfortunately, there are people who won’t be home for the holidays. Our troops work so hard to keep our country safe and most of all, free, and they won’t get to spend Christmas with their family. So what better way than to honor those who give their all so we can feel secure here with a nice warm and heartfelt message? There are many sites online where you can post your support notes like “Send a Message to the Troops” or “Operation Gratitude.”

Since Christmas cards are a time honored tradition and people look forward to them, sometimes coming up with pleasant sayings for a card can be a daunting task. Many stress about what to say, how it sounds and what the person reading it will think, especially for such an important card will go to someone that we might not know, but want to make them happy since they’re serving our country. Here are some messages and sayings tailored for our troops who are deployed and won’t spend Christmas at home, so they feel a little bit of the warmth and love this holiday season.

“For you soldiers, I wish you all a Merry Christmas. I pray to Lord Jesus to bless you all with love, happiness and loads of festivity as you welcome the spirit of Christmas with vigor. Have a merry Christmas, soldiers.”
