Fort Sill hosts annual tree lighting ceremony

FORT SILL, OK (KSWO) – Fort Sill welcomed in the holiday season with its annual tree lighting ceremony.
The festive event was held at 6 pm Thursday in front of McNair Hall, and many gathered despite the harsh winter chill.
Officials lit the tree and fired the cannon, and attendees were treated to performances from students from Freedom Elementary School, the USO Show Troupe and the 77th Army Band.
The event also provided games and snacks, and Santa Claus was on-site for the kids.
The yearly ceremony brings the many families stationed at Fort Sill community together, which is something first-time attendee Kielee Gifford appreciated.
"It's heartwarming to know that even though we're away from home we have a family here, away from home," Gifford said.
