Hometown News Holiday Greetings program
OSAN AIR BASE, Republic of Korea -- American Forces Network Osan will conduct the Hometown News Holiday Greetings program this year, coming to Osan Air Base, Republic of Korea, Oct. 17 and 18, to record those who would like to send a holiday message to loved ones in the United States.
The team will record holiday greetings on Oct. 17 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and on Oct. 18 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the rear patio of the Turumi Lodge. Service members, 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:
Service members 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.
