The December 18th edition of Warrior Connection was a discussion on how to get through the holiday season's unique impact on the military family. Topics included separation., loneliness, and memory triggers that can affect current and retired warriors and their families.  The key is trying to maintain traditions and shared love even when warriors are deployed or memories flood back.  Pastor Bob Shaw emphasized when and where to get help.   We were very happy to have Chris Weise  current OIF Army veteran join us with his perspective from the new group of warriors.  Next week's Warrior Connection  Christmas evening broadcast will be reading and discussing the Christmas story from Luke etc.
