1. ;-( ;-)bitter sweet
    Merry Christmas to you all stay safe.
    I was having a cry just at the thought of being away from my family, them that damn camera reeled around ….. So young was my first thought:-) second was ….. Why are you ALL gorgeous? Lol cheers xxxxx

  2. There you go again, putting a smile on my face and a tear in my eye at the same time! And yes Bruce I saw that too. Breaks my heart.

  3. Yes Cpl Fisher is a talented kid. He came to the BN HQ for Christmas as we tried to pull everyone into one place for the night. He brought his guitar and kept us entertained as the night fell, cigar smoke rose and spirits were Merry. Don’t be sad about those hard chargers faces, they are the looks of fighters and all of the Bn saw their share through the good, and the sorrow. They are Marines.

  4. Thanks to all our Military that serve away from home during the holidays. Gosh, I think Cpl Fisher is wearing the Santa hat I sent you,Major. Didn’t you take it home with you for a souvenir? Really, I’m proud he’s wearing it.Shouldn’t Elvis be showing up soon?

  5. Merry Christmas, I must salute all of our Naval officers. It is very difficult to celebrate Christmas kind of festival far from family. We all should send Christmas wishes to them by any means. This is really the best time to share Christmas wishes from them on internet to make their family feel good. I also want to dedicate one of very nice Merry Christmas wishes with our Naval team – Two things upon this changing earth can neither change nor end; the splendor of Christ’s humble birth, the love of friend for friend. Merry Christmas.

  6. Merry Chistmas sir! (This is the FORMER Cpl. Visscher, now called ‘Drew,’ warm and happy in faraway Montana.) Thanks for sharing this video-I remember that night very well. What a memorable Christmas Eve!

  7. Those of us that have battle hardened Marines at home with us now have seen these looks from time to time when they are remembering the sites and sounds of war. We are all VERY happy you are home Cpl.

  8. Your photos are lovely. The time you have taken to invest in preserving memories is priceless.I hope more. Great job on the site, it looks wonderful. I am going to bookmark it and will make sure to visit often.
