Operation Christmas Drop


Once a year the US Airforce dumps off goods to the less fortunate pacific islands.  A heartwarming change up for us for the holiday season.

For more than 60 years, Airmen have flown over islands in Micronesia, airdropping donated goods in makeshift bundles to help more than 30,000 islanders. The yearly endeavor, called Operation Christmas Drop, is the longest-running humanitarian mission in the world. (U.S. Air Force video/Tech. Sgt. Samuel Morse/374th Airlift Squadron)
