Operation Santa!

There is a Christmas tree in the front office next to the nurse’s station that is filled with ornaments. Each ornament has an item people need because they are serving onboard the USS Abraham Lincoln.

The men & women are Sailors and Marines who have not been ashore in over ninety days. Additionally, they will not be home for the holidays. Below are the steps to bring a little joy and a much needed item to them as they serve our country.


Step 1: Choose an ornament (or 2) of something that you would be willing to donate. Take the ornament off of the tree. (pull carefully).

Step 2: Write a short note/greeting on the tree to the personnel of the ship. The tree will be mailed along with the donated items.

Step 3: Purchase and return item(s) to VHMS, place them in box on top of the file cabinet. The one with the flyer advertising this event.

Step 4: Feel good about giving back to those who cannot be home for the holidays!

DEADLINE: All items will be boxed up WEDNESDAY DECEMBER 18. If you have items you cannot drop off before the deadline, please contact Mrs. Conder in room E-3


On behalf of our VHMS Veterans and the Sailors & Marines onboard the USS Abraham Lincoln
