A U.S. Military Christmas often means a time where we appreciate pictures, packages, phone calls, and letters from our loved ones all over the world, wishing they were close enough to hug (or in my case - shake their hand). Over the years, I've collaborated Christmas and holiday pictures from Military members from all over the world. Take a moment and view these Christmas-time photos submitted buy our faithful About.com users and Military members. Let's remember, some of us are missing their loved ones dearly while others are "cozied up" next to the ones we love. We appreciate our military members for their sacrifice during the holiday season! Thank you!
