From our friends The Lee Brothers (Scott and Richard), hosts of Richmond radio station 1140-AM/WRVA's ratings busting Saturday Mornings With The Lee Brothers, comes this: The brothers, who also serve as prime guest hosts for afternoon talker Doc Thompson, will fill in for him on December 23 for their annual Christmas Wishes From Home show, from 3:00-6:00 p.m.

This segment is for families and friends who want to wish our military personnel a Merry Christmas on live radio. The show also will be posted at their site as well as at the WRVA site so that members of our armed forces (and anyone else) can listen at their conveniecne. You can also listen in real time as WRVA streams live.

The pair will read e-mails and letters on the air during the show. For those who can't call in, you can e-mail them at patriots@theleebrothers.com.

Spread the word by forwarding this link to any friends and family anywhere in Virginia or elsewhere who you know have loved ones deployed overseas. For more information, check out The Lee Brothers Blog.

This is a special time of year for everyone. However, some among us are offering the highest form of valor, selflessness and sacrifice. It's always easy to forget about them this time of year, as we get caught up in the season's festivities and our own concerns, both light and heavy. It's easy to think others will pick up the slack. But let us always remember to keep in mind and prayer those who defend us, at great cost to themselves, for love of country.

There is not a better time to show our troops, Marines, sailors and airmen that we are thinking of them during this special and holy Christmas season.
