Bringing Christmas to Tripler Army Medical Center

This morning The Salvation Army visited patients at Tripler Army Medical Center’s surgical, pediatrics and intensive care wards to sing Christmas carols, deliver blankets, and teddy bears. Here we sang a soft “Silent Night” to lull a sweet little baby to sleep.

Last Friday, our Divisional Leader Major Lani Chamness and Majors Mark and Vicki Gilden visited Tripler Army Medical Center to bring toys, warm blankets, and Christmas cheer to those that have to spend the holidays in the hospital.


The officers visited the surgical ward, greeting each patient with a jolly rendition of “Jingle Bells” and warm blankets for chilly nights. For the hardworking and caring staff at Tripler Army Medical Center, the officers gave them coffee tumblers to make sure they stay caffeinated and hydrated for those long hours.
