Honoring the military during the holidays

By Heartland News

SIKESTON, MO (KFVS) - "Home for Christmas", that was the theme of an event held Saturday at the Sikeston Factory Outlet Stores.

The mall, in association with the Stars and Stripes Museum, hosted the event.

It was all to give thanks and honor all active duty, and veteran military personnel.

It featured a large Christmas tree with 10,000 lights, and specially produced ornaments being made for free for all present and past members of the military.

The ornaments are pictures of the military members, and are being made by folks at the mall and given to each serviceman or woman at the end of the season.
