Holiday Exodus

The holiday exodus is that time of year when a lot of military members leave their bases or posts to celebrate with family and friends. However, mishaps and fatalities have been known to spike during this mass exodus. Even Santa had his own rather famous holiday exodus fraught with dangers; so plan your trips carefully and come home safe!
