With fresh spruce tree needles stuck to his face, Sgt. Mark Seabolt, a soldier with the 108th Military Police Company at Fort Bragg, volunteers during the ninth annual Trees for Troops program on Fort Bragg, N.C. Friday December 6, 2013. This was Seabolt's first year volunteering with the program. "I saw a flier and immediately went to the office to sign up to volunteer," Seabolt said. "I've done a lot of volunteering," he said, "It's one of the main reasons I became a military police officer." Trees for Troops is a nationwide program that provides donated Christmas trees for military families. In 2012, the program distributed over 18,000 trees to military families and troops.
