Giving Back

Twice a week (sometimes more), I volunteer at the Rocky Mountain USO, here on Fort Carson.  It's a great way to meet new people and give back to the soldiers.  This past Saturday we had around 600 soldiers and families come in for a free Christmas dinner!  They got to have their faces painted, get caricatures drawn, and of course visit with Santa (complete with gifts and candy canes!)  It was defiantly a bit crazy trying to fit everyone into our little building, but everyone seemed to have a good time :)  Here are a few pictures from the event!

All ready for Santa!
Funny table decorations made by young kids :P
