Greetings at Christmas

                                       wwii-christmas-card1                                     

While sorting a box of old family photos recently, I found this vintage World War II Christmas card designed for a member of the armed services.  My grandparents sent it to my father in 1942 while he was stationed with the Army at Camp Maxey, Texas.  Dad kept it among his papers where I found it after he died. It reminded me that times may change, but contact with folks back home is still vital for military men and women stationed far away. This holiday season I am thinking of military families and praying for peace.
