Local Students Sending Christmas Greetings To Troops Overseas

Many men and women serving overseas in the military won't get the chance to come home for Christmas, but some students at Clay County High School are sending local troops a little message from home for the holidays.

Students involved in the SWAT program are sending personalized Christmas cards to soldiers in Iraq. They say they hope their messages will give the soldiers support and motivation.

"I wrote stuff like you're in our prayers and we're praying for your family and we just hope that you have a Merry Christmas," said student Ivan Sawyers.

As of now, the students have more than 170 names of soldiers based out of Fort Campbell, but if you have a loved one who would enjoy receiving a card, contact Tabitha Hacker at Clay County High School at 606-598-3737.
