They are collecting cards from communities across the country to send troops over the holiday season..
Debbie Lee, "To let them know that they are not forgotten at the holidays. We want them to know that they are our hero's and that's the name of our tour "honoring our heroes at the holidays" we are very excited to go across America and collect these cards... We probably have between 35 and 40 thousand cards we've collected so far."
