Over the past five years, Duke Wheeler has given over $25,000 worth of Christmas trees to our troops and their families. Despite such outstanding generosity, he says with characteristic humility, “”They’re making greater sacrifices than we, it’s just a token.”
Stories like these are great reminders that not everyone is a Scrooge or a merchandise-crazed, stampeding maniac. I’d like to post more of these type stories through the Christmas season, so if you come across one, e-mail it to me and I may post it (with due credit). If you have one that hasn’t made the news, feel free to share it in the comment section.
