Thanksgiving Message From The CNO
The Chief of Naval Operations, ADM Michael Mullen, released a Thanksgiving message to the Sailors. An excerpt:
"Around the globe and in all manner of ways, you are standing a vigilant watch. You help ensure peace and stability in places that have historically known neither. Giving hope to those in need and pause to those who threaten freedom, you make sure - every single day - that the fight remains on the enemy's doorstep. In places such as Indonesia, Pakistan, and even our own Gulf Coast, lives torn asunder by natural disaster are, by your hands, being restored and renewed. The people you have helped are grateful, Americans everywhere are grateful, and I am grateful for your service.
"That service, of course, can and does demand the highest of sacrifices. We should be especially mindful this year of those families who will have one less chair at the table, as well as those who have no chair at all, much less a home in which to celebrate it. Theirs will be a particularly poignant holiday, and I ask you to keep them in your thoughts and prayers."
And, from the Bubblehead family, Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.
