MINOT AIR FORCE BASE, N.D., -- Many young men and women volunteer to join the military with ambition to serve our country. They proudly serve anywhere in the world. The distance and cost of travel can make it difficult for young Airmen to visit their families over the holidays.
Holidays are a special time of the year and it may mean the world to an Airmen to hug their loved ones and sit down with their family for dinner.
As young leaders in the United States Air Force, the members of the Minot Company Grade Officers Council want to help reunite these families.
Operation Bright Holidays is a program created to help fund travel for first-term Airmen, who are at their first military assignment, to spend time with their families during the holidays.
The number of Airmen sent home is based on the amount of money raised.
