December 22, 2011 | Number of The Day

New Jersey schoolchildren have sent more than 125,000 holiday cards and letters to U.S. military personnel. The project was part of Gov. Chris Christie’s “Season of Service” and was jointly run by the state Department of Education and the Department of Military and Veteran Affairs. Servicemen and schoolchildren have been participating in
ceremonies across the state, where the letters are delivered to the military.
