Operation Homefront Sending Christmas Cards
LA CROSSE, WI -

Some holiday cheer will be headed to our local troops this week.

Operation Homefront is sending Christmas cards and some small gifts to our troops overseas.

They packaged them up Wednesday afternoon.

They hope it will be a reminder for the troops that we're thinking about them here at home. "The holidays are probably the loneliest when you're away from your family, and when you can get inundated with boxes of cards from people, hopefully that will take away a little bit of that loneliness, bring a little bit of home to them," said Patti Lokken from Operation Homefront.

The cards should be sent Thursday and are expected to arrive before Christmas.
