Area residents will have a chance to give U.S. military personnel stationed overseas a bit of holiday cheer again this year.
Beginning Monday, Adopt a Military Hero: Howard County's Christmas for Our Troops will collect donations and gifts to send to military personnel who will spend the holiday season far away from home.
