Behind the scenes
Santa Claus himself spends time with paratroopers who wait patiently, hoping their ticket number will be called for an opportunity to earn foreign jump wings at the 17th Annual Randy Oler Memorial Operation Toy Drop, hosted by U.S. Army Civil Affairs and Psychological Operations Command (Airborne), Dec. 5, 2014, at Pope Field, North Carolina. Operation Toy Drop is the world’s largest combined airborne operation with seven allied partner nation paratroopers participating and allows Soldiers the opportunity to help children in need everywhere receive toys for the holidays.
