Serving in the military during the holidays can be difficult when it is not possible to be with family, and veterans many times feel alienated when the holidays bring up memories of loneliness or loss. In this episode of KSJD's monthly Veterans Affairs program, Tom Yoder talks with local vets Sandi Valencia and Darla Sanders about their experiences serving during the holidays, and how friends and family of vets can be more sensitive to the challenges they face this time of year.
