Holiday Time in Fort Irwin

Moments from the Christmas events at the National Training Center

FORT IRWIN, Calif.  Residents participated in several events around post to get into the holiday spirit. The Holiday Market and Tree Lighting ceremony and a “Breakfast with Santa” event kicked off all of the celebrations.

There were also photos with Santa Claus at the main helipad, which is something unique to a military installation. St. Nick posed in a Blackhawk.

Paws with Claus

No one could forget our furry friends, so the post Vet Clinic welcomed residents to bring their fur kids to take a picture with Santa. There were also hot cocoa and doggy treats provided.
