As North American troupes continue the fighting in the Middle-East, it is increasingly obvious that they will not be able to spend the holiday season at home this year. CBS, Sony Corp. and Circuit City stores have created a unique opportunities for their families along with the rest of the public, to send greetings to the soldiers overseas via DVD.
The Message from America program is running currently at Circuit City stores. Using Sony equipment, store visitors can record a video message to the troops in foreign lands. Family members of military personal will be given extra time to send a personal message. All of the messages will be edited together and placed on special DVDs which will be sent along with portable DVD players to soldiers. The footage will also air on CBS during commercial breaks.
The unique program will run through December 31st at all Circuit City locations.
