Sailor wishes their family in El Paso a happy holiday

Sailors help maintain America’s advantage at sea.

This means they do not always get to celebrate holidays with their loved ones. An El Paso, Texas, native serving in the United States Navy will celebrate the holidays with their fellow sailors aboard USS Harry S. Truman.

“The holidays mean spending time with the ones you love,” said Petty Officer 2nd Class Irvin Martinez. “I may not be home, but I have a military family to spend the holidays with.”

Martinez wants family back home to know they are missed this holiday season.

“I love you and can’t wait to spend the next holiday season with you,” said Martinez.

As a member of the U.S. Navy, Martinez, as well as other sailors, know they are a part of a tradition providing unforgettable experiences through leadership development, world affairs and humanitarian assistance.

“Serving in the Navy means going out in the world and shaping yourself and the future,” added Martinez.
