Cotton took the opportunity to thank those serving in U.S. armed forces, working hard through the holidays to ensure the safety of the American people.

“I think it’s a welcomed reminder that, while most Americans are at home enjoying Christmas with their families, that our airmen, soldiers, sailors, and Marines -- whether they’re in NORAD or around the world -- are out there keeping us safe and defending our values that make this country great,” said Cotton.
