Virginia Beach, Va. - Christmas came early to dozens of sailors and soldiers at Little Creek Fort Story Joint Expeditionary Base.

The Christmas Spirit Foundation and Fed Ex delivered 300 fresh cut evergreens to military families in Virginia Beach.

It’s all part of Trees for Troops.

This is the 9th year the group has given away farm grown Christmas trees to thousands of military families across the country.

The foundation even ships some of these trees to those stationed overseas.

Thanks to Trees for Troops, these families will have a very merry Christmas.
