DUXFORD IMPERIAL WAR MUSEUM, England — When the U.S. Army Air Forces first arrived at RAF Duxford in 1943, they decided to hold a Christmas party for 500 local children.

Sixty-eight years later, Duxford is now a museum, and the Air Force is still hosting a Christmas party for children.

For the past three years, the parties have been sponsored by the 492nd Fighter Squadron from RAF Lakenheath on behalf of the Starlight Children’s Foundation, a charity organization that works with children from local hospitals.
