Operation Christmas Drop supplies islands with bundles of joy

Islanders show their appreciation of Operation Christmas Drop by leaving a holiday message for C-130 aircrews dropping supplies to the islands Dec. 11, 2014, over the Pacific Ocean. Operation Christmas Drop, which has occurred since 1952, is the world’s longest humanitarian airlift mission. Each year the operation supplies residents from more than 50 islands with boxes that contain donations to include non-perishable food items, clothing, medical supplies, tools, toys and other various items.
