KAISERSLAUTERN, Germany — American Forces Network camera crews will visit Kaiserslautern and Landstuhl to record greetings that will run on stateside television networks during the holiday season.

Service members and civilian employees from all branches of service, their family members, and DOD civilians are eligible to participate.

A camera crew will record greetings at the Ramstein KMCC Exchange Food Court Wednesday, Nov. 16 and Friday, Nov. 18 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. On Tuesday, Nov. 15, a crew will record greetings from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. near the dining facility inside Landstuhl Regional Medical Center.

Each person who does a holiday greeting represents all the men and women serving in the armed forces, and these greetings are a reminder that not everyone is home with their family and friends during the holidays. The greeting isn’t just for their family, but for every American, retiree and veteran back home that supports them as well.

For those with family in more than one city or region, it’s possible to record several greetings.

Service members recording greetings must be in uniform. Family members and spouses should come with their sponsors, but if the military member is deployed or on temporary duty, his or her spouse and children may record a greeting.
