Mine include the Royal Marines 'Beating the Retreat' through London, as well as the RAF's 100th Birthday Celebrations.

Happy New Year and I hope everyone in both the UK, US and other allied armed forces have a wonderful New Year.

Not favorite, but newsworthy, and worthy of remembrance:

31 Dec 2018
Stars and Stripes | By Phillip Walter Wellman

KABUL, Afghanistan -- Fourteen American service members were killed in Afghanistan in 2018 as the longest war in U.S. history began its 18th year in October.

All but one fatality was combat-related. Relatively few of the 14,000 U.S. troops deployed to Afghanistan go into combat or serve near the front lines, as they assist NATO's training and advising mission. However, some do work within a separate U.S. counterterrorism mission that targets groups like al-Qaida and the local Islamic State affiliate.
