MANY CANADIAN SERVICE personnel won't be home for the holidays. As of last month, some members of our forces were deployed to the Caribbean and Eastern Pacific (Op CARIBBE), Central and South America (Op GLOBE), Norway (Ex TRIDENT JUNCTURE), Indonesia (Op RENAISSANCE 2018), Central and Eastern Europe (Op REASSURANCE), Kosovo (Op KOBOLD) and Mali (Op PRESENCE). We are thinking of them and for those others who, because of the call of duty, are unable to be "home for Christmas"
