Families who lost loved ones in active duty receive heart warming Christmas gift from Santa and his helpers

SALT LAKE CITY -- Santa ditched his sleigh and took a trip to Salt Lake International Airport, welcoming 10 families as they boarded a flight to a special place.

All 10 families had lost a loved one in active duty.

Thanks to the Gary Sinise Foundation's "Snowball Express," and American Airlines, these families were headed to get a little holiday cheer at the happiest place on earth: Disney World.
