A holiday wave

Our new puppy, Tuku, of two days is waiving to Robin. Please send to the troops in Iraq, waiving to them in support for all they do and wish them a Merry Christmas and hope for a safe and speedy return to their loved ones. My husband served 3 tours in Vietnam and we both appreciate all the military does so we can stay free and send e-mails.

-- Chris Kinion of Olathe, Colorado
I just wish to say "thank you" to all of our troops defending this thing called freedom that so many of the people in this great country of ours take for grantide. I also want to thank their families and hope they know that we pray God's continued blessing on you all each and every day. MERRY CHRISTMAS
Every weekday morning on Headline News' Morning Express, anchor Robin Meade and her team do a shout-out to U.S. troops by showing off photos and videos sent in by their loved ones. Tune in every hour between 6 and 10 a.m. to see the salutes on air, or click through the archives on this page.
