A few of the Mayport employees decided instead of decorating a Christmas tree with the regular bulbs, why not thank the veterans for being able to celebrate Christmas itself. This tree was inspired by a Disabled Veteran wanting to honor her niece currently serving in Afghanistan and a mother of a veteran currently serving in Iraq. It is dedicated to all veterans in hopes that this idea will catch on at other places. It can service as a year round tree and be placed in a facility or home. It is our hope that as many people as possible will stop by and take a picture of themselves by the tree located at Mayport Commissary in Atlantic Beach, FL and send it to their favorite troop or veteran to let them know we are also thinking of them this season as well.
