The Christmas Gift that Changed the World

The Candy Bomber - Gail HalvorsenEven though we are well into January and a new year, I just came across this YouTube video and had to share it. The video, which was released in October 2013, features Tom Brokaw, renowned broadcast journalist, telling the story of Colonel Gail Halvorsen. Colonel Halvorsen, known as the Candy Bomber, is credited with changing the course of the world back in 1948 when he started dropping miniature parachutes of candy to the starving children of West Berlin. His simple act of kindness blossomed into a massive airlift operation that helped heal the wounds of World War II. 

Colonel Halvorsen's story speaks for itself. My hope is that we will all remember his gift every day of the year, not just on Christmas, and strive to make the world a better place in our own small ways, one piece of candy at a time. Please enjoy this wonderful tale of how one man made such a huge difference. 

 
May your Las Vegas home be blessed with the spirit of giving in 2014! Posted in honor of my dad, Walt Waychoff, who also served in Germany in World War II and was the most generous man I ever knew.
