Man Dresses as Santa, Entertains Special Needs and Military Children
(KCEN) -- The holidays can be tough on many military families but one casualty assistance officer is taking it upon himself to spread the holiday cheer.
Steve Humphries has taken on the role of Santa Claus complete with a real beard a special sleigh and his naughty or nice list.
He specializes in special needs and autistic children but also military children.
Casualty Assistance Office Chief Steve Humphries says, "When you ask them what they want for Christmas, you know a lot of children will say I'd like a toy or I'd like this, but when you have that one child that says I want my Daddy to come home. Tough moment. Sorry. Little hard."
Santa Steve says many children hand deliver letters to him and he saves them all.
