Late Summer 1944, while flying missions in Europe during World War II, Raymond’s wife and his family began to inquire about where to send his Christmas presents. He wrote a letter instructing them, … put my presents under the tree. I’ll definitely be home for Christmas. He looked forward to being reunited with his beloved wife Helen and seeing his daughter Ann Marie for the first time. Alas, it was not to be.
Although the conflicts and their locations are different today, many of our soldiers, sailors and airmen will not be home for Christmas. Please pray for them as they serve their country, that they will one day be united with their loving families.
