Christmas in July

Airmen with the 774th Expeditionary Airlift Squadron from Bagram Airfield, Afghanistan, prepared and airdropped surprise bundles—sodas, cookies, beef jerky, CDs, DVDs, socks, T-shirts, and more—on the 4th of July for soldiers at some of the most remote forward operating bases throughout Afghanistan.
