Rallying Troops for the Holidays

Thousands of soldiers will spend the holidays away from their families this year, but an organization called "Move America Forward" is trying to boost troop morale this holiday season.

MAF was in Lubbock Monday, as part of their cross country effort to show support for the troops. They will be sending over 100,000 cards to soldiers in Afghanistan and Iraq. Some supporters will even be going overseas for the holidays.

MAF's goal is to host rallies in 40 U.S. cities before December 14.
