Air Force veteran Alton Thompson salutes his grandsons who are following in his military footsteps:

I want to say Merry Christmas to my two grandsons who are away from home for the first time in the military. SN Samual Thompson and PO3 Keith Walker are in the Navy. Sam is in school and Keith is deployed. I am proud of them both for I served 33 years in the Air Force and I know what it is like to be gone from home. Take care boys love you both.
