Iowa Christmas Trees on Their Way to Troops

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) More than 80 Christmas trees are headed from Iowa to U.S. servicemen and women and their families overseas and at stateside bases.

The Des Moines Register reports that more than 20 Iowa Christmas tree farms donated trees to the Trees for Troops project, which is a program of the Christmas Spirit Foundation. The foundation says that since the program's beginning in 2005, more than 103,000 free trees have been delivered by FedEx to more than 60 military bases in the U.S. and overseas.

Army veteran Gary Harman says he remembers a lonely Christmas he spent in what was West Germany in 1968. That's why he cut down two trees at his Indianola farm on Tuesday, hauled them to the Iowa State Fairgrounds and added them to the outbound pile.
