U.S. Magistrate Judge, Mark Hornsby, fundraising chair, Scott J. Chafin, Jr. and the North Louisiana Chapter of the Federal Bar Association organized the 4th Annual Federal Bar Clay Shoot to Benefit Operation Bright Holiday at Barksdale Air Force Base. Operation Bright Holiday sends first term airmen stationed at Barksdale home for the holidays.

Barksdale’s new 2nd Bomb Wing Commander, Colonel Ty Neuman participated in the shoot along with 30 volunteer airmen and 17 teams. Colonel Neuman and Airman Kelsey Backmeire spoke about how important Operation Bright Holiday is to the morale of our airmen.

Airmen who are selected must demonstrate exceptional job performance and be nominated by their supervisor. In 2015, Operation Bright Holiday was able to send over 100 airmen home to be with their families for the holidays.
