SEASIDE, Calif. – The Cal State Monterey Bay Student-Athletic Advisory Committee representatives got into the holiday spirit by drawing personal holiday cards for the United States soldiers who are serving their country overseas. 
 
“I think anytime we can find a way to thank our service men and women, we should jump at the opportunity,” said SAAC secretary and softball outfielder Angelina Orozco. “These holiday cards were a small but personal and fun way for our SAAC reps to shows Otter Athletics supports our troops.”
 
CSUMB SAAC will be sending the cards to Soldiers' Angels campaign of “Six Months of Christmas” in Pasadena, Calif.  
 
Soldiers' Angels began when military mom Patti Patton-Bader discovered that her son's fellow soldiers were not receiving the homefront support they needed. It quickly spread from a mom and her circle of friends supporting on army unit with care packages, to a worldwide organization with hundreds of thousand of volunteers supporting Americans service members of every branch in a myriad of ways.
