Worldwide Army Day Go home December 24 and stay until January 1

Troops coming home to their family.
Troops, medics, cooks and everyone in the army around the world should be reunited with their family. I chose December 24 because it's the day before Christmas. They would stay until January 1 because they could also celebrate New Years. Other people around the world could also celebrate any other holidays.

These people risk their lives to protect their countries. They need a break to see their family. Family is the most important thing in life.

Men train to protect our country.
