Trees for Troops Program Blesses Military Families

Ad Feedback

Christmas tree farmers nationwide are donating their most prized trees to some of the most deserving people.

The program is called "Trees for Troops" and it's for military members and their families.

Each special tree is dedicated to the memory of an American service person who died in Iraq or Afghanistan.

"When people are out shopping, and they're having a good time, and they don't give a second thought to what's going on, these guys are out here making it safe for them by putting their lives on the line for us each day, and they're willing to pay a lot more for our safety than we are for a $35 tree," tree farmer David Mayberry said.

Military families at 51 bases across America and around the world are receiving the trees.
