FORT HOOD, Texas – Trees for Troops has donated hundreds of trees to be given away to Fort Hood soldiers in grades E-1 to E-4.

This event starts this Friday at 8:00 a.m. at the Fort Hood Stadium. Pickup times for E-5 and above, as well as all DoD cardholders, are at 10:00 a.m. until trees are gone.

Everyone must show a valid military identification card at the time of pickup. Attendees should come prepared to load their own trees, and should bring tie-down ropes or string.

Trees for Troops is a program of the Christmas Spirit Foundation, and provides free, farm-grown Christmas trees to members in all branches of the U.S. military and their families. This is done through donations, sponsorship, grants and the work of many volunteers.
