Eighth Army Surgeon Office honors troops with tree
The Eighth Army Command Surgeon Office put up a Christmas tree in the Dragon Hill Lodge to honor troops during the holiday season.

YONGSAN GARRISON, South Korea - To honor U.S. troops during the holidays, the 8th Army force health protection chief recently decided to give an old Christmas standard a new twist.

Maj. Sequin Mosley came up with the idea to put up an Army Strong tree inside the main lobby at the Dragon Hill Lodge here.

Decorated by the Eighth Army Command Surgeon Office, the 17-foot-tall Christmas tall features red, white and blue ribbons, yellow ribbons and purple ribbons to symbolize America and to honor its joint deployed forces.

Adorned by commander's coins from around the Department of Defense, the tree is topped by the U.S. Army logo.

The command surgeon office encourages anyone visiting the Dragon Hill Lodge to stop by and see their unique holiday creation.
