Operation Christmas Miracle –
The Believe in Santa Tour 2015
Our 13th annual “Operation Christmas Miracle: The Believe in Santa Tour” in 2014 was a huge success! The Foundation brought the spirit and magic of Christmas to the American Heroes in our Armed Forces and their families at:
- Guantanamo Bay Naval Base, Cuba
- Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, Bethesda, Maryland
- Balboa Naval Hospital, San Diego, California
- Wounded Warrior Regiment, Camp Pendleton, California
- Snowball Express, Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas
With the generous participation from Members of Congress, past Presidents, and CEO’s of various Fortune 500 companies, the Spirit of Liberty Foundation brought our American Heroes in the Armed Forces and their families a variety of gifts and Christmas cards as a simple way to say “thank you” for their service.
This note from Mr. Richard Burkett was received on December 19th, 2014, the day after we visited those wounded in combat at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, and indicates how important the participation of everyone involved is:
Thank you very much for the thoughtful and helpful notes, cards, and gifts. It is nice to know that there are a few leaders in the House and Senate that care enough to send their well wishes to the warriors recovering at Walter Reed, as well as help make the Christmas Season a little (or a lot) easier on the wallet. Thank you from the Burketts, all six of us!
Richard Burkett, USMC
