Send holiday video greeting to the deployed

By on December 15, 2011

AURORA—Senator Chris Lauzen invites local military families with active servicemen and women to record and send a free personalized holiday season video greeting to their deployed family members.

Through the generosity of the Illinois Center for Broadcasting in Lombard, Ill., military families can record a free professional digital message that will be transmitted via Facebook to their loved ones during this Christmas season.

For more information, call Senator Lauzen at (630) 264-2334. Recording appointments can be scheduled with Illinois Center for Broadcast through Friday, Dec. 16.

Chris and Sarah Lauzen are the proud parents of two sons serving in the United States military. USMC Capt. Ted Lauzen is a pilot stationed at Camp Pendleton, Calif. Their third son, US Navy Ensign Hans Lauzen, is currently deployed onboard the USS Kidd in the Western Pacific Ocean.

“As a parent of a deployed serviceman, I know how excited our son will be to see and hear his family at what can often be a very lonely time for soldiers far from home,” said Senator Lauzen. “We will tell Hans how much we love him, how much his service is appreciated and that there’s a package with his favorite Christmas cookies on its way.”

Senator Lauzen sends his heartfelt thanks to the Illinois Center for Broadcasting for their generous offer to our military families.
