It is at this time of year that we get to truly recognize our gifts and our blessings.
To cherish time with our families, friends and home cooked conversational "sessions."
As we come together and collectively celebrate the gift of His presence,
Let us not forget the importance of each other, our purpose and the giving essence.
We are thankful for you who stand watch on endless nights and challenging days,
patrolling, protecting and preserving our Nation's shorelines and waterways.
We are honored to be given the present, for the opportunity to serve those who serve others,
And provide the tools, the training, and the resources to our family of sisters and brothers.
As our purpose, our mission, and the voice of our members are very clear,
We look forward to the opportunities to serve you in the coming year.
We wish you the very best during this time of faith, hope and love.
That your new year is blessed with grace and guidance from above.
Onward and forward.
