Traill County Veterans Services Mailing Out Annual Blue Christmas Ornaments

December 10, 2021 News -- KRJB-KRJM-KKCQ 0

Hillsboro, ND — While to most, “Blue Christmas” is just a hit holiday tune made famous by Elvis Pressley, but to those who have lost someone in the past year it’s a harsh reality that they won’t be spending time with them during this special time of year. To help honor the lives of Veterans who passed away this year, Traill County Veterans Services will be sending out special ornaments to their families. Traill County Veterans Service Officer Rebecca Hodgson says historically they have always held a special Blue Christmas Service along with the distribution of the ornaments to family, but for the second year in a row due to the COVID-19 pandemic, they will only be sending out ornaments.    

Hodgson also encourages any Veterans who may be struggling this time of year, for whatever reason, to please reach out and they will do what they can to help get you what you need.
