    What a way that this family will always remember Christmas.

    Is this the CHANGE that Czar Obama PROMISED US Almost 100,000 and counting going to that poppy field, in Harms Way!

    Enjoy Christmas in Hawaii Barack, knowing how many families are mourning there loved ones, since you took office, and how many will not even have there loved ones at home, because you the CZAR in Chief, did not keep his word. liar-liae-your-pants-on-fire.
