Bush praises military families who help others with sons and daughters serving overseas

President George W. Bush praised U.S. troops on Saturday and gave a special thank-you to military families who have turned the grief of losing loved ones into acts of compassion.
For many relatives of U.S. troops, military service means packing up their belongings and moving on short notice, living in a foreign country or missing a family member as he or she serves overseas, Bush said in his weekly radio address.
Bush taped his broadcast on Friday before leaving aboard the Marine One presidential helicopter to fly to Camp David with first lady Laura Bush; their daughter Jenna; and Mrs. Bush's mother, Jenna Welch. He will celebrate Christmas with his family at the presidential retreat in Maryland's Catoctin Mountains, then travel to his Texas ranch the day after Christmas.
"This Christmas, many will sit down for dinner thinking of their loved ones half a world away," Bush said. "These families deserve the thanks and the prayers of our whole nation."
