Hometown News Holiday Greetings
AFN Osan will conduct the Hometown News Holiday Greetings program this year, coming to Camp Humphreys, Oct. 3-4, to record those who would like to send a holiday message to loved ones in the United States.
The team will record holiday greetings from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. each day, in the Community Activity Center, but it is customary for them to stay until the last person is done. Servicemembers, civilian employees from all branches of service, and their family members are eligible to participate.When the team sets up, there are a few guidelines to follow to ensure family and friends back home see your personal greeting on local television and hear it on local radio stations:
Servicemembers must be in uniform. Work uniform is fine. Family members should accompany their sponsor, unless the sponsor is deployed. Santa's hats, pets, banners and Christmas attire are fine.
Make sure to bring your address book. You'll need family members’ names, city, state and phone number. No street address is needed.
Try to keep hand gestures to a minimum and, of course, no profanity. When you’re giving your greetings, don't say “Happy Thanksgiving,” so the greeting doesn’t become obsolete. Most of these greetings will air from Thanksgiving Day through New Year’s Day.
