While our freedom of speech and expression remain constitutionally protected, I'd like to shout to the rooftops after reading this story.

For years, as my parents kept the dream alive and instilled in me the magic of the Christmas season, tracking the world-wide journey of Santa Claus and his reindeer became a tradition I eagerly awaited.

Like millions of other children, I tuned into the NORAD reports of where jolly ole' Saint Nick was in his trek.

Now it would seem even that simple and innocent pleasure is not so innocent according to a children's advocacy group.

Now I've got to tell you that after being glued to the Santa Tracker for years I never had a desire to join the military but it sure did build my respect for them!

Tell us what you think!
