Congressman Howard “Buck” McKeon plans to hand deliver holiday cards from Santa Clarita Valley school children to troops serving overseas.

McKeon is traveling with a Congressional delegation to Romania, Italy, Afghanistan, Germany and Luxembourg as part of a congressional delegation and will bring with him 3,000 hand-made greeting cards from students in his district.

Among the piles of holiday greeting cards are those made by Santa Clarita Valley school children from Santa Clarita Christian School in Canyon Country and James Foster and Highlands elementary schools in Saugus.

“It is difficult for our troops to be away from friends and family during the holidays, and I just know these cards from the children in California will be uplifting to them.

“It is an honor to be able to personally deliver them,” McKeon said in a written statement.

“As the holiday season draws near, we should all be reminded to keep our brave men and women in the armed services in our thoughts and prayers as they continue to fight to keep our great nation safe.”
