The Alaska National Guard's Operation Santa Claus flies volunteers to remote villages with books, fresh fruit and school supplies for children. Santa recently landed in the Yup’ik Eskimo community in western Alaska. "Santa and Mrs. Claus is not something that normally happens out there for them," said the program’s chairwoman, Jo Katkus. "It’s a real treat to be able to get in there and do something for the kids that they might not ever see."
