Operation Stars and Stripes

My office is doing a Holiday Project with Operations Stars and Stripes.
This is an AMAZING operation and honestly I cant even imagine being away from my Family at Christmas much less every other holiday and special occasions through out  the year.

I figured since we are doing this at work I thought I would share on here in case you or anyone in your family  would like to get involved an help. 

They are doing stockings for soldiers right now.
