Christmas is usually planned with military precision. Please note, when we say “military precision,” we mean operational precision. Not military family precision.
Let’s face it, once all the “precision” has been handed out before Christmas stand-down, there is very little left to share with the families.
There are so many films depicting military homecomings over Christmas. The family are seen enjoying the most magical, special time together. Let’s face it. That’s not what happens, is it?
