U.S. Troops Ignite Pacific Joy with Yuletide Airdrops

Welcome, dear readers, to a heartwarming tale of American generosity and holiday cheer at Andersen Air Force Base on the beautiful island of Guam. This place is not just a tropical paradise; it’s also home to 8,000 of our bravest joint service members, civilians, and contractors. And what are those fine folks up to this holiday season? Well, hold onto your Santa hat, because they’re taking part in “Operation Christmas Drop,” a decades-old tradition of spreading joy and goodwill to the most remote islands in the Pacific.

Picture this: a B-29 Superfortress aircrew swooping over the island of Kapingamarangi back in 1952, and seeing the islanders waving up at them. In a true Christmas miracle, those airmen dropped supplies attached to a parachute to the islanders below, and thus, a heartwarming tradition was born. Fast forward to today, and the C-130J Super Hercules crews at Andersen Air Force Base are still at it, spreading the holiday spirit by airdropping food, supplies, educational materials, and toys to the most far-flung islands in the Pacific. 

The “Great Communicator” himself once said that Christmas is not just a day, but a state of mind. A time when faith triumphs over doubt, hope conquers despair, and love reigns supreme. 

Our 34th president had his own recipe for the classic holiday drink, and it’s a doozy. Picture a dozen egg yolks, a pound of sugar, bourbon (or rum or brandy if you prefer), and not one, not two, but TWO quarts of creamy goodness. 

The fine folks at Monmouth University have done the good work of finding out America’s favorite Christmas cookie. And the winner is… drumroll, please… the frosted sugar cookie! That’s right, 32% of respondents in their very official poll said that the frosted sugar cookie reigns supreme. The combination of sugary goodness and festive colors is hard to beat. 

As we celebrate this joyous holiday season, it’s heartwarming to know that 89% of U.S. adults join in the festivities of Christmas. From decorating homes to making Christmas candy, cookies, or desserts, and even volunteering for charitable activities, the American spirit truly shines during this time of year.
