If I was to hear or read the politicaly correct "Happy Holidays" one more time, well, I'm not sure. I guess next it will be not PC to wish anyone a Happy New Year on January 1st as it might offend someone in the population who might celebrate on a different day. Where does it end...

Captain Kostovic ,Godspeed and many thanks!! To the many new neighbors at his condo complex. It was extremely decent of you to throw a party in the Captain's honor. God bless you all for making this soldiers life a little better.
