This movie is a salute to and from all United States Military Personnel and their families. It is about the hardships and unexpected situations and problems that every family faces. It definitely shows the 'unknown' that military life brings. Tricia and Marc did an excellent job of showing the heartache that is faced by not only their situation but others' problems by other families. Tricia and Marc put everything they had into this movie especially the love their characters felt for each other. The three children were perfect in each of their roles. The music and Christmas carols were placed in the movie at the right place and time. The ending carol is a message that all of America can sleep safely tonight as our brave men and women are on guard throughout the world. A special thanks must go to Hallmark and especially Nina Wienman (writer) for capturing the heart of the military and their families. As a Marine Veteran, I have faced a lot of the same problems that were shown in this movie including being away several times at Christmas and the extended tours of duty overseas. This movie is a 10 even though there are some goofs/mistakes. These goofs/mistakes are way over shadowed by the message this movie brings. That message is to face the unknown with bravery, courage and honor while sharing your fear with others. THIS IS A MUST SEE MOVIE BY ALL. If you loved 'The Christmas Card' Christmas movie, you are going to more than love 'Operation Christmas'!
