PUNXSUTAWNEY — Every year, one day exists when the world seems to stop spinning so quickly on its axis. In the graceful winter stillness, all is silent.

BROOKVILLE and THE USS HARRY S. TRUMAN — Christmas will be different for Jeffrey Draa and his mother, Joann, this year. Namely, they will be together during the holidays for the first time in three years.

Draa is a member of the U.S. Navy, and serves on the aircraft carrier USS Harry S. Truman, which has been at sea for the past 211 days, according to Lt. Katie Cerezo, assistant public affairs officer for the Truman. Draa has been on board for that entire duration.
