"'Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the base Only sentries were stirring--they guarded the place. The soldiers were sleeping and snoring away As they dreamed of 'back home' on good Christmas Day..." One Christmas Eve at a military barracks in the Middle East, some homesick soldiers are paid a visit by Sergeant McClaus, the Santa of Soldiers. This lively and poignant tale is inspired by Clement C. Moore's classic yuletide poem.
