A Christmas Eve Story

A Soldier calls home on Christmas Eve from Germany.

His kid brother cries because they aren't together for Christmas.

The Soldier explains they are together, unlike the families of the two friends he just lost in Ramadi.

"By the end of our conversation, I really think he got it."

Story told by a patient during an informal Christmas Eve service at which the Chaplain asked participants to share what Christmas means to them.
