decoratevetlargeSometimes acting on an idea is all it takes to be a part of a blessing. A business man in Northern Virginia knows all about that.

His volunteer project is bringing Christmas cheer to veterans and their families, one decoration at a time.

A group of young volunteers gathered on a chilly December morning at a townhouse in Falls Church, Va., with boxes full of holiday decorations, lights, and two Christmas trees.

Kennedy is a 15-year veteran of the United States Army and the Marines. He fought in the Iraq war.
