Operation Santa Clause Still In Effect with COVID

With the Holidays quickly approaching and having a pandemic on the rise the Alaska Air National Guard is still holding their traditions true.

Even during COVID and having to scale back Operation Santa Clause is still in effect. The mission is to successfully deliver wrapped gifts and supplies to the small villages in Alaska.

COVID restrictions caused the National Guard to deliver the packages on the air strip where Villagers rode up on their snowmobiles to watch. Once all items were delivered the Villagers could go and pick up their packages. This was very out of norm for these locals, but it was greatly appreciated.

GREAT JOB on a successful mission completion! Even though we couldn’t see him, Santa was still able to make magic happen this year!!
