'Bert Show' sends thousands of letters to troops

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA -

"The Bert Show" is once again making the holidays happier and brighter for U.S. troopers.

Volunteers with "The Big Thank You" gathered and packed 243,000 letters for members of the military away from home for Thanksgiving.

Each year, the program makes sure soldiers who are deployed overseas get a letter of gratitude for their service and sacrifice.

Organizers say many of the servicemen and women even share their letters with their platoons to brighten their holiday season as well.
