Christmas is a time to spend with family, to share gifts and reminisce about old memories and moments that we sometimes take for granted. Our brave military members end up spending their holidays without their family, wishing the could just have something, anything that reminds them of home.
Donna Smith created Operation Serving Soldiers to help military members and show that no hero will be forgotten. Smith says that she wanted to give these soldiers something to eat or a letter, wishing them happy holidays. She mentions as she was stationed in Iraq, there were soldiers there who didn’t receive anything during these holidays and that they deserve to be supported, especially since they are so far from home.
