WASHINGTON, Dec. 16, 2002 – To the Men and Women of the Armed Forces

I send holiday greetings and salute our men and women who wear the uniform of our Armed Forces, serving our country with skill, honor, and dedication.

All of you, our brave men and women who devote your lives to our Armed Forces, help protect the ideals that make our Nation strong. You deserve every American's gratitude and full support. America's military will continue to receive the best training, equipment, and resources.

I am honored to be your Commander-in-Chief, and I join all Americans in expressing our gratitude for your sacrifice and service to our Nation in this global war against terrorism. May God bless you and keep your families in his care, and may God continue to bless America.
