Video holiday greetings from Staff Sgt. Ashley Deschamps (Punta Gorda)

The holidays are a time when friends and family come together - but members of the U.S. Armed Forces who are serving overseas often miss the traditional holiday cheer.

That's why ABC Action News is taking action for our community and bringing you video holiday greetings from local heroes in the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps National Guard, and Coast Guard. Each season, these messages mean so much to friends and family who are separated from their loved ones during the holidays.

We are showing all of these holiday greetings on air but we're also chronicling them here, on Feel free to share them with friends and family.

From our families to yours, happy holidays and thank you.
