With the holiday season upon us and families preparing for the festivities, we would like to take a moment to pay tribute to the men and women of the Coast Guard and Armed Services who will spend this holiday season away from home.
“I would like to thank all the men and women out there standing the watch this holiday season, keeping America safe,” said Master Chief Petty Officer of the Coast Guard Michael Leavitt.
We know our deployed members cannot serve their country without constant support from loved ones at home. It is through family, friends and communities advocating for servicemembers, that each Coast Guard member is able to perform the mission with honor and devotion.
So this holiday season, if you get a chance, thank these courageous and hardworking servicemembers for all that they do in protecting our great nation, and their loved ones at home.
