Happy New Year!

Last night, soldiers of SCV Camp 1452 braved the elements in Southaven, Mississippi to guard the gates of Southern Lights. For those of you who are unfamiliar, Southern Lights is a Southaven Christmas tradition. As you drive through the park, music accompanies an awesome light show.

This year, the Sons were chosen to collect admission from cars traveling through Southern Lights on New Year’s Eve. Although the turnout was less than in other years, the weather was tolerable in that it wasn’t too cold (like it was last year), but a thunderstorm caused heavy rainfall at times. The lights were accentuated by occasional flashes of lightning.
