But Melvin Koelling, and others like him, are trying to show service members that they are not forgotten in the holiday rush.

Koelling, a retired Army captain who served eight years in the military, is participating in the Christmas Spirit Foundation’s program, “Trees for Troops,” according to KXAN-TV.

“The objective is to show appreciation in this season for the service that the military personnel provides,” Koelling said. “And we express that through the donation of a Christmas tree.”
