Old Saint Nick Returns to Hill AFB

  • Published
  • By Staff Sgt. Robert Porter

After a two-year hiatus, Santa took some time out of his schedule to visit the 419th Fighter Wing during their holiday party.

Santa arrived in style in an F-35A Lightning II since his sleigh is currently at the North Pole being packed with toys and wasn’t available for use.

Santa stuck around for a while to greet 419th FW personnel and their children and to personally deliver gifts.

419th FW reservists spend one weekend a month at Hill AFB and welcomed the opportunity to bring their family members to base to share in the mission.

The festivities lasted for several hours and included snacks, activities for reservists’ children, and music.
