Trees for Troops is an awesome organization that helps American service people celebrate Christmas with a traditional Christmas tree, when otherwise they may not have been able to.
Their website explains:
Imagine a smiling group of U.S. troops gathered around a Christmas Tree that was grown on an American farm and express shipped to arrive fresh and green somewhere on the other side of the world, just in time for Christmas. Or, imagine the families of deployed troops sharing joyous memories of Christmas through the gift of free, real Christmas Trees. Trees for Troops® makes this vision a reality!
