On Nov. 29, 2018 the Fort Detrick community gathered around the installation Holiday Tree to kick-off the season with the annual tree lighting ceremony. Led by Director Tyler Miller, the Frederick High School Chorus shared two selections and led the crowd in festive carols to set the mood for the joyous occasion. As installation commander Maj. General Barbara R. Holcomb, U.S. Army Medical Research and Materiel Command and Fort Detrick gave the countdown, children shouted out in excitement to light up the enormous tree. As the tree shone brightly, Mrs. Claus, elves and Santa himself traded his sleigh for a Fort Detrick Fire Truck handing out candy and well wishes to all who were there.
