PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” â€śThereâ€™s no place like home for the holidays.â€ť
The oft-quoted holiday song brings with it a sense of warmth and nostalgia for those who are able to travel the distance, great or small, to be with their families over the holiday season. For soldiers serving our country, whether at home or abroad, the song could stand as a painful reminder that they will not be able to spend the holidays with their families.
