Camp Kinser, Okinawa, Dec. 7, 2007: Marines of Headquarters Company, Combat Logistics Regiment 37, throw candy from their “Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer” float during the Camp Kinser Christmas parade. Sgt. Cody Perry said the float was his idea and it took the unit about three weeks to turn the up-armored seven-ton truck into a reindeer. “It was definitely worth it,” he said. The float won third place.
