Camp Lejeune Site Of Military Christmas Tree Give Away Program

Anyone with military identification can get a free Christmas tree next month at the main post exchange at Camp Lejeune thanks to a program sponsored by tree growers.

Eight hundred trees will be given away December Eleventh by the Christmas SPIRIT Foundation. Nicole Kellogg of the foundation, which is the charitable branch of the National Christmas Tree Association, said the group got a boost from Federal Express which is helping with transportation.

Each military branch decided which bases would get trees. In addition to Lejeune, trees will be given away at Marine Corps Air
Station Cherry point.
