Paratroopers help Santa make deliveries

FORT BRAGG

While the event is held to put smiles on the faces of children during the holidays, it's also a big moment for the Fort Bragg paratroopers.

On Friday, soldiers anxiously waited for their number to be drawn for a slot in Saturday's big airborne operation.

The jump operation runs until Saturday afternoon followed by a ceremony where the paratroopers receive their foreign airborne wings.

The thousands of toys donated yesterday will be passed out to children at Fort Bragg and the surrounding communities.
