"Campus Veterans Grateful to be Home for the Holidays"

University of Wisconsin - Whitewater (20 NOV 2007)
Even though it might be a holiday in the United States, overseas there is still a war going on that doesn't take a vacation. "Thanksgiving was my first day in Kuwait," Idzikowski said. "You're still given tasks and objectives to do. The same with Christmas, we were out on a mission." Veterans home for the holidays are grateful to be back but are quick to remind others that there are still soldiers overseas who are not as fortunate. "There are people who aren't coming home for the holidays," Stachel said. "So maybe stop and be thankful and think of those people."
