The Military Family is such an integral part of what we do as Army Reserve Career Counselors and continues to be in the forefront of our minds as we “Never forget” our fallen comrades, or their families! The 2nd Battalion, Army Reserve Careers Division was able to participate in The Snowball Express event at the Pittsburgh Airport on 30 Nov, 2012 to show Army Support for these families!
Sponsored by American Airlines, The Snowball Express takes children of fallen servicemembers on a vacation to Dallas Texas.
This is the seventh annual event, held November 30 through December 4, 2012, marks the fourth time Snowball Express has visited North Texas. Activities for the families include:
- An “American Candy Land” reception upon arrival at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport. Youngsters had the opportunity to create holiday-themed crafts, enjoy cotton candy, and visit with Santa and Mrs. Claus.
- A visit to the AT&T Performing Arts Center for the annual tree-lighting celebration
- Participation in the Dallas Children’s Parade
- A trip to Six Flags Over Texas
- A private concert by Gary Sinise and the Lt. Dan Band at Fort Worth’s Billy Bob’s, the renowned Texas honky-tonk.
