Greetings all, Merry Christmas to all my brothers out there, both at home kicked back, and in harms way. For those guys out there on the hairy edge, we have you in our hearts and prayers. From the almost 3000 lbs of sugar and cookies we shipped to you, hopefully you get home safely, not overweight and not in diabetic shock.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
Charlie Heidal, MSgt, USAF RET
