Video: Sergeant Robert Allen Sings Christmas Song to Wife

| by Michael Allen

Master Sgt. Robert Allen of Marine Wing Support Squadron 371 recently performed a heartfelt Christmas serenade to his faraway wife (he's stationed in Afghanistan, she's in Pawnee, Oklahoma).

Allen's fellow Marines at Camp Leatherneck were so impressed that they filmed him singing and playing the modern-day military carol to serve as a video Christmas card for the thousands of spouses and families who'll be spending these holidays without loved ones (video below).

Part of lyrics go: "It's a tough, hard life, being a military wife, spreading cheer along the way, wearing a smile every day, while your husband's away."
