American Red Cross volunteers got a little cheery this week.

On Dec. 18, volunteers stopped by the VA Medical Center in Leeds to sing carols and hand out holiday cards to veterans.

The Holiday Mail for Heroes campaign was a successful one this year, with thousands of cards coming in from all over the country. The cards - messages for veterans, their families and those troops on assignment - were sorted and distributed to bases, hospitals and military offices around the world.
