Hero Central: Families start signing up for Angel Tree Program

 

The Salvation Army's Angel Tree program is underway, thousands of families are expected to line the halls at three locations for the next two-weeks in hope they can provide their children with a happy holiday.

Georgena Clay is applying. She says, "I'm a single mother of four children and I know sometimes it can get hard to get the kids the things that they need for Christmas."

This is Clay's fourth time to apply. If it wasn't for Angel Tree, Christmas wouldn't look so promising. She smiles, "When I see a smile on my children's face it makes me happy; that's the best Christmas gift that a mother could ever receive for their child."

For the first time, the Salvation Army will have a Spanish interpreter at the North Little Rock and Saline County locations.

Major April Taylor says, "We are very happy to be able to supply a need that the community is showing us exist."

Thunder over the Rock soars into Jacksonville

 

 

It's the first open house at the Little Rock Air Force base since 2008 and the Thunderbirds' first performance here since 2005.

This is a unique opportunity to tour areas that are normally off limits to civilians. This weekend more than 200,000 people are expected to land at the base to watch the air-show.

Saturday, the sky was the stage for performers of "Thunder over the Rock" air show. Airmen pulled off the impossible, making it look easy.

Thousands of spectators lined the runway, amazed by the death defying stunts.

Activities on the ground also commanded attention. You could tour modern jets, antique aircrafts and the C-130's. The Little Rock Air Force base is the world's largest C-130 training base.

Hometown Heroes Salute at LRAFB

About 150 airmen and their loved ones from the 189th Airlift Wing gathered at the Little Rock Air Force Base.

The airmen were honored for their dedication overseas in support of Operations Iraqi and Enduring Freedom.

They say it feels great to be recognized but that their families also deserve the spotlight. 

"Our absence in serving our country does have an affect on them. Hopefully not all negative that they can learn a little bit from our leadership by example as well," Chief Master Sgt. Sean Flannery said.

"My people back home had to suffer with my departure. It does put a real strain on the families but they all support them and again they are the back bone of our continued service," Brigadier General Riley Porter said.
