Alaska National Guard brings Christmas gifts to local kids
The Alaska National Guard has a tradition of serving communities throughout Alaska during the holiday season, delivering Christmas gifts and a variety of delights to the children. In its 61st year, some things have changed over time, but the joyfulness and excitement never does. The island-town of St. Michael was selected for a visit Dec. 5, 2017, welcomed by the community, whose population of about 400 is largely Yup'ik Eskimo. They expressed gratitude and enthusiasm to their out-of-town guests who showed up to spread holiday cheer.
