25 Dec 90
Merry Christmas. Every day is a holiday in the Corps, so of course we got to work today. Opened presents the night before at 0001 Zulu, got some nice gifts from family. Got a balloon animal kit, maybe I can start a new career.
Told the guys to only work off the downing discrepancies and then to write letters and relax. They worked a shorter, 6 hour shift. Wish we didn't have to work, but 1) what else was there to do and 2) never know what the Iraquis would come up with .
Christmas meal was good, though not as good as Turkey Day. Got stuffed and went back to tent early.
Merry Christmas from Sgt Lee, Frosty and Clark.
