Wing thanks deployers

A surprise visit from Santa impressed kids of all ages, military and civilian, as the 932nd Airlift Wing said farewell to a large group of deployers during the unit training assembly on Dec. 2, 2017, at Scott Air Force Base, Ill. Santa (Senior Master Sgt. Wayne Cantwell) came down the stairs of the C-40 aircraft maintained by the 932nd Maintenance Group and flown by the 932nd Operations Group. He was on hand to meet and greet everyone, along with the Belleville West Hight School marching band who played the United States National Anthem to start the event. Multiple information booths were set up in the hangar to help deployers understand benefits and resources. The 932nd is an Air Force Reserve Command unit in Illinois and is aligned under 22nd Air Force (U.S. Air Force photo by Lt. Col. Stan Paregien)
