MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WBTW) – Many service members are not able to spend the holidays with their friends and family.

But some are using the web to send messages back home to loved ones- including two service members from our area.

Take Sargent First Lieutenant Tyquain McClellan, for example. He sent a ‘special shout out to his family and friends in Florence, South Carolina’ from Iraq.

Watch his message here:

The Defense Visual Information Distribution Service provides service members the opportunity to send these messages home during the holidays.

Specialist David Mishue of Lumberton wished his family a happy holiday season from Kuwait.

From News13, thank you to all our service members!
