Raw Video: Troops in Iraq Celebrate Christmas

It’s nice to see that even in Iraq, the Christmas spirit is still alive and well.

Here’s a wish for a very Merry Christmas and a happy and safe New Year for all of the troops now stationed in Iraq and Afghanistan. My your missions be accomplished and our return home to your families and country be imminent.  God Bless you all.
