As Americans gather with families and friends this holiday season, we want to send out a heartfelt thank you to Guardians wherever they may find themselves on this Christmas Day.

And, a special thanks to the families of the men and women on patrol both at home and abroad. Your sacrifice for our safety and security is one of the greatest gifts of all.

A joyous, healthy, and safe holiday season to Guardians everywhere.
