This picture shows me as a skinny major with a painted Bou ready to deliver eggnog, cookies, candy, ice cream, and much more during the days leading up to Christmas 1968. The Army troops in the field were astonished to say the least to see this airplane taxi into their forward base with the loadmaster standing atop the Bou's top hatch with a Santa suit on.
