Coast Guard gives Santa a hand

HOONAH, Alaska (AP) - December 17, 2010

The Cutter Liberty is delivering toys, coats and blankets to remote communities along the Southeast Alaska coast.

The villages are so isolated, even Rudolph might have trouble finding them.

Skipper Brian Tesson says the crew enjoys their holiday mission.

He tells the Juneau Empire newspaper most of the crew can't get home for Christmas, so they like helping others celebrate.
