January 7, 2014

The December snow-storm may have closed down DC but it was not going to 
squash the holiday spirit of our UT families and friends.   

Re-scheduled for January, dressed in their finest holiday attire, the UT families turned out in force, as they were honored by the Secretary of State for their resilience, their dedication and sacrifice while their loved ones are serving the nation from afar.

The New Year was rung in
as our guests arrived downstairs.


But quickly discoved upstairs,
this Holiday Season 
was still in full swing

The finest had been laid out,

leaving nothing to spare, 

this was true appreciation to show how much we care

Treats abound at each turn
 so hard to decide.....

Frosty, so happy to be in from the cold,
danced a little jig

So as the jingles played on...


This UT Holiday Season will long be remembered
as the one that just kept on giving.

Thanks to all of our UT families and friends.  And a special thanks to Secretary of State Kerry for his personal recognition of the sacrifices made by the men, women, families and friends of those serving on an unaccompanied tour.
