Christmas Tree Honoring Veterans Goes Viral (Photos)


A photo of a Christmas tree honoring veterans is going viral.

Several Louisiana residents have passed the tree located in St. Martin Parish, but it wasn't until one person noticed what was on the bottom of it that it became viral, Mad World News reported.

The ornaments on the bottom of the tree had handwritten names of veterans and military branches inscribed on them. A photo of the tree was then shared on Facebook.

The caption read:

I need help! I am the Christmas Tree located in Breaux Bridge, St. Martin Parish, Louisiana. As you can see I need Christmas ornaments on my branches. I am no ordinary tree. I represent all military veterans and active military living or dead. Just get an ornament, put a name, branch of service and place on a branch or place at base and I will have my helpers place the ornament on one of my higher branches. Honor a family member or a friend, please help fill my branches.

You may mail an ornament to:

Pellerin Life Insurance office.

600 Corporate Blvd.

Breaux Bridge, La. 70517

Please share this post to help honor our military.
