U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., said Monday he wanted to wish all West Virginians a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

"Gayle and I, along with the entire Manchin family, wish all West Virginians, Americans and our brave service men and women a very merry Christmas and peaceful and prosperous New Year," he said. "As a country, we are blessed to have such a devoted and patriotic military. Our brave service men and women are far from the beautiful holiday sights and sounds we get to enjoy. They are holding vigil where there is no peace. But their vigil is what makes our peace possible. So let us make sure to keep them and their families in our hearts and prayers, not just during the holidays, but every day of the year."

 "We are all so blessed, and that is never more apparent than during the holidays as we share our blessings with our family, friends and neighbors. Many times it's easy to take things in our lives for granted. But especially during the Christmas season, let's remind ourselves of the countless blessings we have.

 "May God bless you all with peace and good will this holiday season. And may the hope and joy of the season fill the stockings and hearts of every West Virginian."
