Santa's Whereabouts

First Lady Answers Children's Queries on This Issue 
American Forces Press Service
WASHINGTON, Dec. 24, 2013 - First Lady Michelle Obama today took phone calls from boys and girls from across the country asking where Santa was located as part of the annual NORAD Tracks Santa program run by the North American Aerospace Defense Command at Peterson Air Force Base in Colorado.

This is the First Lady's fourth year participating in this Christmas Eve tradition, according to a White House official.
The First Lady is currently in Hawaii on vacation with her husband President Barack Obama and other family members. In her conversations with the children she employed a portable Santa-tracking radar screen courtesy of NORAD.
Obama started taking the calls at around 11 a.m.local Hawaiian time and she spoke with about a dozen children for around 30 minutes.
Santa can easily perform his global Christmas Eve journey, the First Lady explained to the children, because he and his gift-laden, reindeer-drawn flying sleigh can go anywhere in the world at the speed of light.
"I'm looking on [NORAD'S] radar screen and right now, Santa is headed to the Republic of Rwanda -- that's in Africa, that's all the way in Africa," the First Lady told 9-year-old Wyatt from South Carolina. "Right now, he is delivering toys to some little girls and boys all the way in Africa. Can you believe that?"
She asked Wyatt what he wanted for Christmas and he answered, "A Zoomer [robotic dog]."
"A Zoomer? That sounds exciting, that sounds fun," the First Lady replied.
Later, a young girl named Ella called to ask, "When is Santa coming to Kansas City?"
"Santa is going to come to your house, Ella, when you are fast asleep -- that's how he works," the First Lady replied. "I think he is in Sudan now because there are some kids over there who are already tucked in bed with their eyes closed. So he is going to come to your house as soon as you're asleep."
The NORAD Tracks Santa program began in 1955 after a phone call was made to the Continental Air Defense Command Operations Center in Colorado Springs, Colo. The call was from a local youngster who dialed a misprinted telephone number in a local newspaper advertisement.
The commander on duty who answered the phone that night gave the youngster the information requested -- the whereabouts of Santa. This began the tradition of tracking Santa, a tradition that was carried on by NORAD when it was formed in 1958.
The NORAD Tracks Santa program has grown immensely since first presented on the Internet in 1998. The website receives millions of unique visitors from hundreds of countries and territories around the world.
In addition, a live Operations Center is occupied for 25 hours with more than 1,200 volunteers each year who receive hundreds of thousands of phone calls and emails from families around the world.

Army National Guard soldiers embraced the opportunity to foster international camaraderie by honoring the service of some 57 wounded warriors and their support teams from the United Kingdom and Denmark.After a poignant reception by the welcoming line, the U.S. soldiers took the opportunity to meet and exchange stories with their British and Danish comrades.
"The welcome has been phenomenal," said British Cpl. Jay Watt, with the British army's 4th Battalion, The Parachute Regiment.
"I was overwhelmed by the warm welcome," Watt said. "I've never seen that before."
Staff Sgt. Laura Atkinson of the British army's Corps of Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers, echoed that sentiment.
"It's been overwhelming and quite humbling," she said. "We don't get this sort of support over in the U.K., not only from the public but from other corps and services."
The event was a way to say thank you.
"I'm excited for you to be here," Army Lt. Gen. William E. Ingram Jr., the director of the Army National Guard, said in his opening remarks. "Hosting this group today provides an opportunity to thank you for your service and the sacrifices that you've made to the cause of freedom around the world."
And that sacrifice was shown both on and off the battlefield, Ingram said.
"You've shown valor on the battlefield," he said, "but just as importantly, each of you has shown incredible courage and determination throughout the course of your rehabilitation."
Throughout the day, guests received background briefings on the National Guard's history, followed by sessions broken out by specialty that allowed for an exchange in cultural ideas that cultivated ongoing relationships.
"We recognize that we are partners and that we need each other," said Command Sgt. Maj. Brunk W. Conley, command sergeant major of the Army National Guard. "If we maintain our relationships, the next time we call on each other and need each other's help, we'll be there standing side by side, ready to do whatever the mission calls for."
Guests ended the visit with sharing a barbeque-themed lunch with National Guard Bureau leaders.
For these wounded warriors and their support teams, the reception at the readiness center marked the first stop of a week-long trip that includes participating in yesterday's 38th Marine Corps Marathon, a tour of Arlington National Cemetery, a trip to Capitol Hill and a visit to the Pentagon.
"I'm looking forward to all of these," Watt said.
