JTF-Bravo invites children to base during tree lighting ceremony
SOTO CANO AIR BASE, Honduras -- Army Col. Chris Gehler, Joint Task Force-Bravo commander, and two children from a local orphanage press the plunger and light the base Christmas tree near Building B-202 Dec. 1. More than 40 children from a local orphanage were brought on base for the ceremony. After the tree lighting they sang some Christmas carols, listened to the reading of “A Christmas Story” and had a surprise visit from Santa Claus, who handed out presents and candy to all the children (U.S. Air Force photo/Staff Sgt.
