The 97th Air Mobility Wing invited Airmen and their families to attend and celebrate the annual Holiday Tree Lighting, Dec. 6, 2019, at Altus Air Force Base, Okla. At the tree lighting event, hosted by the 97th Force Support Squadron and the base Chapel, cookies and refreshments were served and Santa Claus was accompanied by two of his reindeer to greet Airmen and their families. Every year a family of a deployed spouse is given the special honor to join the command team in activating the lights on the tree. This event allows families of Mobility’s Hometown to come together and support each other during the holiday season.
