“Merry Christmas from another time and place”

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Un_nH–QXWw
“My name is Sal Anthony and I served in Vietnam as a Marine. Every year at Christmas I think about the time I spent in ‘Nam and how important it was for me to know that my family and friends loved and missed me. Christmas mail helped me feel connected to those I loved back home. I believe all soldiers share a common bond that connects them through time. It was with this thought in mind that I wrote the Christmas song ‘From Another Time and Place’. It is my way to say Merry Christmas to my brothers and sisters who serve in Afghanistan, Iraq and throughout the world. They are always in my heart. Semper Fi”

She wanted to know if I had seen his articles and did I know of the Fisher type house that was being constructed in Texas to help them. She was sending out a donation to: “Returning Heroes Home” http://returningheroeshome.org/ Read the rest of this entry »
