AFA Chapters Celebrate Holiday Season with Charity

While the Christmas season is often filled with family, presents and parties, AFA Chapters around the country have used this season as a time of giving. AFA's Ak-Sar-Ben Chapter of Omaha, Nebraska, celebrated the holiday season with a visit to the Omaha Veterans Hospital. A week before Christmas, "Santa's elves" provided gifts, drinks and snacks to all the in-patients and staff!


And from the Thomas B. McGuire, Jr. Chapter of McGuire AFB, New Jersey, AFA members participated in the 20th Annual Wreaths Across America event, held on December 10, 2011. At Arlington National Cemetery, Capt Jennifer Condon-Pracht teamed with the CMSgt Bryan Creager and Capt Emily Brand were able to assemble 25 active duty, civilian, and Civil Air Patrol volunteers to help lay wreaths at the day’s event. More than 100,000 wreaths were laid with more than 10 truckloads of wreaths delivered.
