Merry Christmas From Afghanistan

I wanted to post this here at ChristianBlog.Com, even though it has been posted at thousands of other websites, because as an American, and for all of the nations around the world who have sons and daughters, fathers and mothers, brothers and sisters, out there defending all types of freedom - be it from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe, be it with a gun or a Bible, be it spreading freedom from poverty to freedom of oppression or freedom of religion - may the good fight continue, and may the Lord's protection be upon you, until the return of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.

Merry Christmas from Afghanistan, oh man, it's that time of year, and the birth of Jesus doesn't seem to please the terrorists down here; I'd like to take a moment for you folks at home to make it clear; Merry Christmas from the Eastern Hemisphere.

Merry Christmas from Afghanistan, way back in the USA, You've got mistletoe and falling snow, we've got sandstorms and grenades But what the hell, it's just as well we celebrate it anyway, Merry Christmas from 5,000 miles away.

And I remember many Decembers, sitting 'round that tree, And now I'm in an outer cordon sitting 'round an IED, I've traded yams and roasted ham for a chicken noodle MRE, Merry Christmas from out here in the middle east.

So merry Christmas from Afghanistan, from our AO to yours, I'll be watching illegal DVDs and defecating out of doors, Put my pedal to the metal man, I'll settle for that medal of honor when I when the war, Single-handedly from my armored drivers door.

Yuletide salutations from our vacation in the sand, from this E-3 Lance Coolie and up the whole chain of command Between Al Qaeda, Al Jazeera, Mujahadeen, and the Taliban, It's a very merry Christmas in Afghanistan.

From south Montana, to northwest Indiana, to the shores of North Caroline, From NYC to LA's beaches and down the Mason-Dixon Line, It's that season where we're freezing, but all in all, we're doing fine, So merry Christmas from Afghanistan tonight. It's that season where we're freezing, but all in all, we're doing fine, So Merry Christmas down the Final Protection Line!

Seasons greetings from CAAT 1, WPNS CO, 2nd Battalion 2nd Marines. (filmed on site at Alpha 1)

Thanks for posting this John.

I have a nephew in Afghanistan -he'll be spending his Christmas just like this.
We need to remember to pray for ALL our young people -no matter what war they are fighting.
