Thule lights up the tree

Thule Air Force Base, Greenland -- Col. Thomas Colvin 821st Airbase Group commander and the Capt. Richard Casey 821st ABG chaplain kicked off the holiday season during the annual Tree Lighting Ceremony at Thule Airforce Base, Greenland, on Nov. 17, 2017.  Afterwards, Airmen spent time wrapping gifts for over 200 local children from nearby villages as part of Operation Julemand.  Operation Julemand was first started in 1959 by base service officer Capt. John McTamney, and Airman 1st Class Delbert Cox, a clerk, when they decided that since they couldn’t be at home with their own children, they would bring a little happiness to the children in the local area.
