'A simple way to salute the troops'
A Christmas tree decorated in a simple way to salute the troops. I wish all of us in USA do something like that.
Hello Robin, My family and I trying to salute/appreciate the troops our way by decorating our Christmas tree the way you see it in the pictures. We would like to tell our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan through your program that we thank all of them for protecting us and we know that they are wining. Also, we wish them all a safe return and a merry Christmas and a happy new year.
