Lt. Larry Middleton, a department head at the Naval Hospital in Bremerton, Washington, places a special ornament on a Christmas tree—the decoration honoring Lt. JG Travis Kelly, one of seven Naval Hospital (Bremerton) personnel deployed to Afghanistan. The tree was being decorated as part of the command’s annual Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony. Ornaments were also placed to honor those who recently returned from Afghanistan.
