ABERDEEN PROVING GROUND, Md. –  APG child Thia McNair, 5, tells Santa her Christmas wish of a “Hatchimal” following the APG North (Aberdeen) tree lighting ceremony hosted by APG and Corvias Military Living Dec. 5.

APG Senior Commander Maj. Gen. Bruce T. Crawford wished the crowd a “happy holiday,” and asked them to “keep in mind those who are deployed, about 150,000 soldiers, who cant be here with family to participate in this, but are defending freedom so we get the opportunity to participate in this event.”
