“The holidays are a special time of the year when families and friends get together to enjoy each other’s company. We want to do all we can to bring that experience to those who can’t be home for the holidays due to being stationed overseas. I believe it’s important to provide this holiday tour series for the amazing men and women to help remind them of the holiday cheer back home. It’s the least we can do for those who serve our country,” said Lt. Col. Kenneth Marshall, Chief of AFE.
Military personnel will interact with the entertainers in intimate events, sports clinics, and festivities to spread holiday cheer across remote regions, to troops dedicated to protecting our country during a time when they miss home the most.
