20 lorry loads of Christmas decorations are set to arrive in Afghanistan in time to celebrate Christmas this year.
It's after one soldier's wife, Lisa Ferries, heard the news that the Army was planning to cut its' Christmas budget - and thought that everyone should be able to celebrate the holiday.
Lisa then wrote to a festive decorations company, who agreed to send decorations out to the soldiers who couldn't be at home at such an important time of year.
