Fort Hood’s U.S. Army Operational Test Command hosted its annual Christmas party Saturday.

Hundreds filled West Fort Hood’s Montague Elementary School for games, crafts, food, pictures with Santa and Mrs. Claus, giveaways, and mini train and horse rides.

The event was hosted by the command’s Headquarters and Headquarters Company, and was open to soldiers’, civilian employees’ and retirees’ families.

Col. Brian Dosa and his wife, Roberta, brought their children, 13-year-old Abagail, 10-year-old Nathan, 8-year-old Mimi and 8-month-old Scott, to the party.

This is the Dosas second year with Operational Test Command and their second year attending the party.

It’s one of the best, Roberta said, of the holiday event.

“Once you come once, you’re hooked,” Brian said.

Mimi’s favorite part about the party was the horse rides outside.

The command is great because it supports families by hosting events like the party, Brian said.
