Fort Sill rings in Christmas season with tree lighting

FORT SILL, Okla._Led by a group of singers from the new Freedom Elementary School on post, hundreds gathered Tuesday night on Fort Sill to ring in the Christmas season.

Santa Claus made an appearance on stage with Post Commander Major General John Rossi. He also helped with the countdown to the lighting of the tree by Fort Sill's half section.

"It's an opportunity for the families to come out to enjoy the kids singing, and things like that.  Enjoying a little bit of community time, and great time to reflect on the great things that go on here on the installation," said Command Sergeant Major Brian Lindsey.

The crowd was also encouraged to remember those soldiers who will be away from their families this Christmas, either on deployment, or training at Fort Sill.
