Local Family Gets A Christmas Phone Call From Their Son Overseas

Allison and Jim Redding recieved a phone call from their son Mike. A special christmas wish to his family and friends, including his neighbor Hannah….her class wrote 21 christmas letters to soldiers in Germany that just arrived a short time ago. Mike spent most of his early childhood in New York. His parents say it's that New York life style that prompted him to join the air force.  His family is hoping Mike will be home next christmas, but is a long time to wait. So Mike and his family are hopeful he can take leave in February to come thank all the caring students who sent their love.
