Seasons Greetings From the Military
December 5, 2015 10:37pm CST
In America … well, at least in Texas, there is a really cool tradition. We have many soldiers who are not able to spend the holiday season at home with their families. Our local news stations will allow soldiers who live in the city to send a “Shout Out!” to the loved ones. Like a living Christmas card. Isn't that a great idea??! So you're watching the local news and at a certain point during the report some soldier will come on the TV screen and go “Hello! I'd like to send best wishes to my family and friends in (Name of City) in Texas.” And then they might even call names. Can you imagine some kid missing their dad or mom and then seeing them on TV wishing them a Merry Christmas? Do they do that in your state (if you're in the USA) or your country (if you're not in America)??
