Valdosta - He can't be home for Christmas, so Master Sergeant Michael Rollins' family is sending a little bit of Christmas to him. "We put a lot of homemade goodies in there, a couple of special gifts, and just anything to make their time over there a little easier," said Technical Sergeant Peggy Rollins.

Rollins is deployed to an undisclosed location in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. "I really miss him," said Vicki Rollins. This will be the first Christmas away from his wife and kids. "We're got another family who's going to spend it with us because her husband is also deployed, so we're trying to get through it the best we can," said Rollins.

They're filling a box with his favorite candy, cookies, and Christmas treats to bring a holiday surprise. "He's probably going to cry but I hope he and everyone over there enjoys it," said Rollins.

The care package will be mailed on Thursday and hopefully arrive by Christmas day. A reminder of the loving family awaiting his return.
