Santa and His Elf, on Parade


New Year’s Parade

In an attempt to raise morale with the troops, the unit put on a parade on base. Many other countries got involved, and there even were camels and sheep participating.
Our section was represented by no other than your’s truely. I was voluteered. However, I had great company, since one of the best leaders here was also volunteered…and what the pair we made.
Sean sent the Santa outfit, which worked out perfectly. I had a make-shift elf costume, and we decorted the Polaris. We even had a full size Christmas tree in the back which lit up.
He was the crudest Santa I have ever seen; it was hilarious. Insulting and throwing things (apple sauce and tuna) at parade-watchers, he was a great Santa. It was a lot more fun than I ever thought it would be.
And that’s right, Santa and his elf have beers in hand (N.A.) and cigars. Staying classy!
