Trees for Troops has Ellsworth “Rockin Around the Christmas Tree” Published Nov. 29, 2017 By Airman 1st Class Michella Stowers 28th Bomb Wing Public Affairs ELLSWORTH AIR FORCE BASE, S.D. -- Trees for Troops is a holiday program that provides free Christmas trees to military members and their families between November 29th and December 16th. “The overall concept is to give back to troops during the holidays,” said Carrie Brewer, marketing director assigned to the 28th Force Support Squadron. Donations are received from roughly 18 tree farms across the nation and Christmas SPIRIT Foundation delivers them to 68 stateside and overseas bases. This is the ninth year Ellsworth has received trees from the program. They will be distributed at Outdoor Recreation from 1 to 2 pm to spouses of deployed military members, after that time anyone with base access will be able to choose from the remaining trees.
