13 Photos Of Santa Hanging With The Troops
Sure, Santa is known for riding a sleigh and giving out presents. But when it’s time for Santa to “git some” he calls on the troops.
Sometimes, Santa needs a few inches of armor …
…and other times he wants the treads and big guns.
When he’s flying, he may do the WSO thing.
But he can also go single seat, if required.
Santa’s always up for saying howdy to the troops he meets along the way.
And he’s not beyond helping out.
In a pinch, he uses air drops — so much faster than landing at each house.
Helos have all of the space of the sleigh without the inconvenience of feeding the reindeer.
When the chimney is too small for Santa, the Air Force helps him by lowering the presents on a hoist.
Claus sometimes heads to the rope course for a confidence builder before the big night.
Jolly Old Saint Nick is also pretty good on a ruck march.
He’s been showing the military love for a long time.
And the troops are always happy to see him.
Merry Christmas from WATM!
