Operation Zulu: Give the Gift of Holiday Spirit to Our Men and Women in Uniform

Give the Gift of Holiday Spirit to Our Men and Women in Uniform

Operation Zulu began in 2010 while U.S. Air Force (Retired) CMSgt John Dougherty was deployed. He was amongst many young Service Members who were spending the holiday away from their families for the first time.  He wanted to give them a little bit of home and holiday spirit and requested the help from MAC and friends for holiday gifts to be shipped over. Operation Zulu was a success and MAC has  continued that tradition each year since.
