Holiday Wishes: For the tenth consecutive year, employees from the Mobile Devices Business division of Motorola in Libertyville granted 150 holiday wishes by delivering various gifts to Captain James A. Lovell Federal Health Care Center patients. The gift-donating tradition asks veteran residents the three things they would like for the holiday season. Those wishes are written on individual ornaments and hung on a Christmas tree at the Mobile Devices Business division office. Motorola employees who wish to participate take one or more ornaments and bring the gifts to work, which have been traditionally delivered toveterans toward the end of December. Thirteen Motorola employees arrived at the Federal Health Care Center and personally handed the gifts to each vet.
