PETERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Colo.--During this special holiday season, Beccy and I offer our heartfelt thanks to you--our Air Force Space Command family. Whether active-duty, guard, reserve, civilian or contractor, we are grateful for your extraordinary commitment to defend the United States and protect the freedoms every American enjoys. Our families are a vital part of this commitment, which is why we are forever thankful for their contributions and sacrifices.

It has been an exciting and challenging year. We’ve proven space is important to the warfighter and to the global economy. Both friends and foes recognize space is fundamental to the way the United States conducts military operations and our economic well-being. Our duty is to continue developing, fielding and operating our space and missile capabilities as an integral part of our Nation’s success.

Remember, your dedication and expertise are critical to maintaining our role as the best space and missile force the world has ever known. During this holiday season, it is important that we all take the opportunity to spend some quality time with our families and friends to celebrate, reflect and refocus.

As always, many of our U.S. and allied servicemen and women are deployed around the world and will spend the holidays away from their families. We ask you to keep these military members and their families in your thoughts and prayers as they secure the rights of liberty and freedom for all of us.

Beccy and I wish you a joyous holiday season and a safe, prosperous New Year. We are proud to serve with each and every one of you.
