"The heart of America is with those who made the great sacrifice in defense of our ideals."
Pres. Coolidge said this during a special Christmas Eve message to the nation’s veterans in 1923, before walking out to light the first National Christmas Tree. On Christmas Day, Pres. Coolidge & his family spent 3 hrs with veterans of WWI at Walter Reed Hospital.
