Some of our family members and friends will be far away from their homes protecting our freedom this holiday season. We thought that if we posted a few videos of Maine folks currently serving overseas in the military that it would bring out that holly jolly feeling within all of us!

Here's Lt.Cmdr. Benjamin Waite sending a greeting to Portland, Maine from Rota, Spain.
