As we are now just under three weeks to Christmas I had noticed a video in my inbox this week from my buddy Steve in Nolanville. Steve is a firefighter here in Bell County who often checks in during the afternoon to say Hi or to see what trouble I've gotten myself into. He was kind enough to share the video above called 'A Soldier's Silent Night'.

The military is always on the minds of Texans in Bell County and this touching video shows another side of the holidays that make us appreciate all they do for our country even more.

Many of our soldiers who are deployed over the holidays have children at home wishing their families could be together. To make the holidays a little easier, Operation Phantom Support and Townsquare Media have come together for TOYS 4 Troops. This toy drive benefits military families in Central Texas. Unwrapped toys that will go to these families are being accepted through December 14th at a number of local sponsors. Find out more about helping these families with the button below. Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas.
