Many U.S. military men and women will once again receive a Hoosier Christmas tree this year through the Trees for Troops program.

The program sends about 17,000 trees a year, and 200 come from Indiana. WFYI’s Taylor Bennett spoke with Tom Dull, the Towner of Dull’s Tree Farm in Thorntown, Indiana, to learn more about the program established for troops unable to come home for the holidays.
