'Making this world a better place'
We have a yearly Christmas party for friends and neighbors at the home of Mary and Paul Bailey in Sag Harbor, NY. This year we asked everyone to pose with a sign in front of the tree to say thank you to our troops. All of us at the party want the troops to know that we know how lucky we are to have men and women willing to sacrifice for the good of our country. We have no doubt that they are making this world a better place for our children and grandchildren. We want all of them to know that we know how lucky we are and think of them often.
-- Mary, Paul & Kelly Bailey in Sag Harbor, New York
