Op Teddy Bear 2013

TRAVIS AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. -- For nearly three decades, members of Team Travis have been participating in Operation Teddy Bear. This year, the 349th Medical Group hosted the event and had more than 25 volunteers and the Travis Honor Guard. Airmen visited local Solano County kindergarten children and distributed 480 gift bags filled with Teddy bears, candy canes, juice boxes, toys, and pencils. The children also got an unexpected surprise; a visit from Santa himself. Chief Master Sgt. Louis Kloeppel, or as he's known to the children, "Santa," listened as each child whispered their Christmas gift wishes in his ear. (U.S. Air Force photo/Staff Sgt. Amelia Leonard)
