Happy Holidays from Virginia

It is the night OF Christmas and not a creature is stirring not even a mouse...and I find myself with a quiet moment to send our greetings to all of you..the families of Group 75. Many times today as we shared in our family traditions I would pause to wonder what Ryan and each of our young people were doing to celebrate this holiday season. I know they have learned to rely on each other for support in challenging times as well as to share in the more happy times. We are looking forward to the same with all of you. Happy, Happy Holidays and God Bless. Gail and David

Holiday thoughts and greetings

Hi everyone,
Rudi and I just wanted to wish all of you happiness for the holidays and say that you are in our thoughts. We know that all of us are feeling a little blue with one of our children so far from home and from the dinners and presents and family gathering. It is a wonderful, giving thing that they are doing and it’s truly within the spirit of the season, and we’re all justifiably proud of them for doing it. So, Merry Christmas, Happy Chanukkah, and Happy New Year to you all, and we look forward to a day when they will join us at our holiday tables once again.

They've come a long way!!

I know you all join me in being so proud of Group 75, the first group in 5 years to all be sworn in. What a great day! Congratulations to all of our new PCV's and best of luck to them tomorrow in their new homes. I can't wait to hear about everyone's new adventures and placements! Rudi
