GOODFELLOW AIR FORCE BASE, Tea --
Starting at the Vance Deployment Center and ending at the Louis F. Garland Department of Defense Fire Academy, children spent the day participating in activates and military style learning about deployments during Operation Kids Investigating Deployment Service at Goodfellow Air Force Base, Texas, Nov. 4.
Children used paintball guns to learn about weapon safety, learned how to read maps, cleared mock villages, ran an obstacle course, and were welcomed home by their families as if it was a real homecoming. The goal for the event was to give the children an idea of what it is like for military members to deploy.
