Holiday Surprise

Fort Sill, Okla._One Lawton family came home to a holiday surprise Tuesday afternoon. Amanda Alexander and her daughter Lexie were surprised with decorations by "Christmas Decor."
Each year the company picks one military family and decorates their home for free.

A couple of Alexander's friends nominated her because they wanted to bring a little bit of joy to the Alexander family during this time of year.

"Well there's a whole bunch of reasons  why Amanda is special, she's an amazing person but what made us nominate her was because she lost her husband Toby in May of this year, part of our unit. And we just kind of feel like you take care of your own family," Tara Crooks said.

2nd Lt. Tobias (Toby) Alexander was killed in combat in Afghanistan.
1/-14fa/214 BDE was the "family" Crooks was referring to.
