PICATINNY ARSENAL, NJ--During this holiday season I wish the entire Picatinny team peace and joy in the truest American spirit. May your homes be blessed with all the joys of the holiday season. As we remember our many personal blessings, we should also take a moment to remember how truly fortunate we are to have the remarkable Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines, and Coast Guardsmen who serve so courageously and selflessly. They truly are America's new greatest generation.

I thank you for all you do to ensure the men and women of our armed forces have the best possible technology in their hands. Every role here at the Arsenal has a direct impact in the lives of our service members. Every job is important. So I thank you for your contributions this year and I look forward to an even better 2015.

May God continue to bless you, your families, and our great nation.

Happy Holidays!
