JOINT BASE ELMENDORF-RICHARDSON – An uncontrollable cold chill bites your face, the dryness in your eyes increases with every stride and the occasional gust of wind sneaks past several layers of clothing and touches your skin like the cold water of a morning shower. But all of these unsettling sensations are merely part of the experience and excitement of playing pond hockey.

JOINT BASE ELMENDORF-RICHARDSON — The Fort Richardson National Cemetery, at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson hosted the annual Wreaths Across America Day, Dec. 12, 2015.
