Manning’s Holiday Statement

“I greatly appreciate everyone’s support and well wishes during this time.  I am also thankful for everything that has been done to aid in my defense.  I ask that everyone takes the time to remember those who are separated from their loved ones at this time due to deployment and important missions.   Specifically, I am thinking of those that I deployed with and have not seen for the last seven months, and of the staff here at the Quantico Confinement Facility who will be spending their Christmas without their family.”
