Red, white and blue was the predominant color palette for this year’s illuminated Christmas Parade, with event participants enthusiastically welcoming the troops home for the holidays and honoring their service. 

Maj. Gen. John "Mike" Murray, commanding general of the 3rd Infantry Division and senior commander of Fort Stewart-Hunter Army Airfield, said he was “appreciative and humbled” to serve as honorary grand marshal and looks forward to strengthening an “already strong bond" between the military community and the Liberty County community.
