January 24, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

I had the distinct pleasure of assisting Santa at a Fort Hood unit's holiday party.  I was honored to help him out

Of course, this was a First Air Cavalry Brigade unit, 1-227th Attack... there are no reindeer needed, Santa arrives with the help of a UH-60 Black Hawk from a sister battalion!

Here are the highlights from this event, all the photos are available here.

Now, Santa is a sweet man.  He flies all over the world giving out toys to good boys and girls.  But... some kids are just a little afraid of the old guy.
