Irene Bechtler might have the most patriotic Christmas tree this side of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
Bechtler found a way to turn her tree into a tribute to U.S. history - one gold-plated ornament at a time.
The 77-year-old Rock Hill woman collects ornaments issued by the White House Historical Association, which produces a series of annual ornaments to represent each of the U.S. presidents.
The collection started with a gift from her nephew Paul Blackwell, a retired three-star Army general.
Blackwell was among the first Americans to enter Iraq during Operation Desert Storm, and his division of 20,000 soldiers, eight of whom were killed in battle, routed Saddam Hussein's most feared troops.
