For milspouses with loved ones deployed, the Holiday season can be tough. Last Christmas, my husband was deployed. In addition to the small Christmas tree and care package that I sent, I took all sorts of photos of the Christmas tree in our home, the animals laying under the tree, the decorations, etc. and created a humorous and cheerful Power Point presentation using the photos. I saved the presentation as a .PDF file and emailed it to my husband on Christmas Day. I was able to bring my husband home, for a brief few moments, in the virtual sense.
For those of you who are in the same position this year, how did you send some Holiday cheer to your deployed spouse? How did you make the best of the separation?
