With nearly the entire fall season, Halloween and numerous other events and activities immediately forthcoming, the holidays will not be a point of concern for most area residents within the next month or so. Those on American soil have the luxury of waiting until 4:30 p.m. on Christmas Eve to drive to Wal-Mart and buy a plethora of Christmas cards and various gifts for loved ones. Those defending the nation overseas, however, do not have that luxury. They don't have card stores a few minutes from home. Unless soldiers receive a little bit of help from those on the homefront, they won't be sending their loved ones any holiday cards this season.
