Willie Wellbrock calls out ticket numbers during the 15th Annual Randy Oler Memorial Operation Toy Drop at Fort Bragg, N.C., Dec. 7, 2012. Wellbrock, who was an Air Force master sergeant when Operation Toy Drop started, is one of the original members. The first phase of Toy Drop includes Soldiers bringing in an unwrapped toy to receive a ticket. The tickets are then randomly drawn to earn the seat for tomorrow's jump at Sicily Drop Zone. Last year, Operation Toy Drop collected more than 12,000 toys that were donated to charities and organizations across North Carolina.
