Fort Leonard Wood kicked off the holiday season Tuesday night at Joint Services Park with a virtual tree lighting. Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation organizers welcomed community members to the event virtually through a livestream on Fort Leonard Wood’s Facebook page instead of a socially distanced in-person gathering due to the rising number of COVID-19 cases in Missouri. Cards to the Community returned to the traditional ceremony: the Bowman family of the 5th Engineer Battalion took home first place, the Counter Explosive Hazard Center’s entry scored second and the Air Force 368th Training Squadron’s card finished third. Best of Show went to the Plass family from the Directorate of Emergency Services.
