For the fourth straight year, Santa is wearing camo pants.

The USO once again brought holiday cheer to deployed troops downrange with our USO Christmas Convoy. The tradition continued with USO Senior Vice President of Operations Alan Reyes and USO staffers who work downrange handing out gifts to troops who won’t be able to make it home to celebrate with their families. The gifts ranged from televisions and video game systems for entire units to enjoy all the way to Big Apple Care Packs for individual service members. The packs – supplied by the USO of Metropolitan New York – included snacks, toiletries and New York Yankees hats.

Every gift was made possible by the generosity of the American people, who donate to the convoy throughout the year.
