LAWTON, OK (KSWO) -Fort Sill hosted Trees for Troops on Saturday, to make sure military families get a Christmas tree at no cost to them, as a special thank-you to our Soldiers and their families.

All 300 trees came from Wisconsin and Michigan. They were donated by the Christmas Spirit Foundation.

Chris Smith, The Recycle Program manager says these aren't just any ordinary Christmas trees, they have special messages on them for the military families from organizers.

"A lot of the trees, if you'll notice have little messages, such as, thank you for your service, Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas from our family to yours, we appreciate what you're doing and even some trees have little ornaments tucked inside of them," said Smith.
