Soldiers get into Christmas spirit

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Soldiers and their families lit the Christmas tree at Hunter Army Airfield Monday night.

Maj. Gen. Tony Cucolo knows having all their Marne soldiers back for the holidays is something very special.

"When you're deployed, this is what you think about. You think about family moments and the greatest gift this season is being as a family wrapped together and that's all we hope for," said MG Tony Cucolo, Commander of the 3rd Infantry Division.

There are still over 8,000 3rd ID soldiers overseas, but many will return before the new year.
