I just wanted to wish each and every one of you a Merry Christmas! I hope you all get some enjoyable time with your family, and I thought I’d share some pictures from back in the late ’90s when I was away from home.
Hopefully, these will serve as a reminder that there are thousands and thousands of military service members deployed throughout the world.
They’re in harm’s way,
out at sea without the benefit of mail,
and crammed in tight ships too tight to be even remotely considered humane.
We owe them greatly for their service. Please remember them and thank a vet every chance you get…
Keep the faith,
Stan R. Mitchell

P.S. If you enjoy fast-paced books, you just might like my works. “Sold Out” tracks the life of a legendary Marine Sniper after a CIA unit decides to kill him for reasons of national security. “Little Man, and the Dixon County War” tells the uphill fight a young deputy faces after surviving three years of war only to find himself in the sights of a mighty cattle baron. And “Soldier On,” a short novel, follows the lives of several German soldiers in a depleted infantry company trying to make it through the final, miserable months of World War II.
