Awww, this actually brought a tear to me eyes...as a new lurker and a not-yet roaster, sir, let me join in a very small way and wish you and all of the brave men and women with whom you serve a very Merry Christmas. My family will stay free because of the hard work you all do, and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Godspeed your safe return. --Phil On 12/20/06, True, Dennis W.
