From the "]Christmas newsletter I sent out to everyone on VI Corps Combat Engineer mailing list...


Hello, anyone out there????

Marion, don't panic! My children's Advent calendars say we still have some days!


All good wishes for the festive days and a happy new year to everyone in this great forum,

and particularly to you, Marion!




How old are your children?

If you want to get really technical, it is currently Advent, yes? Christmas doesn't start until Christmas and goes through the Epiphany. I know, I know, that's just crazy religious talk. Secular America demands I buy a bunch of stuff made in China to give to everyone and then forget about it 1201 on December 25th.


Actually, that is not too far removed from what they do here in Japan. They get into the Christmas thing (At least the secular aspects) here in Okinawa and in Japan at large. Apparently one tradition is to get a big bucket of KFC. Not sure what the connection is, but good for the Colonel, I guess.






All that being said, I just want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukah, and Happy New Years’!

How old are your children?

13 + 15



Lee and I are still laughing about the KFC thing. Oh my, it takes all kinds. Heck, we like KFC too, so Merry Christmas Colonel Sanders and oh ya, Todd and family too! ho-ho-ho!

Wishing all the VI Corps family a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New year.



Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all! Hoping that 2013 is better than 2012 and a little worse than 2014! :)

Here's a great cartoon. This was sent to my buddy Filip, from a WWII veteran from Eugene Cook, WWII veteran of the 101st, 506th Regiment. I think you will enjoy it!post-2-0-04388400-1356721659_thumb.jpg
