The volunteer group, Military Missions Inc., has a Facebook challenge. It’s seeking suggestions to revise the lyrics of the 12 Days of Christmas.
The Facebook page is up to Day 10, but changes to the previous suggestions are welcomed too.
The reworded lyrics so far: On the ninth day of Christmas my true love gave to me…
- 9 units marching,
- 8 Captains calling,
- 7 jets a roaring,
- 6 flags a flying,
- 5 M.R.Eeeeee’s,
- 4 calling cards,
- 3 cookie tins,
- 2 combat boots and
- our soldiers coming home from overseas!
Based in Lexington, Kentucky, Military Missions Inc. is a volunteer group of people dedicated to meeting the needs of deployed service members as well as the family members on the home front.
