    Soldiers from 3rd Combat Aviation Brigade participated in the Consolidated Trunk-or-Treat Oct. 30 at Fort Stewart/Hunter Army Airfield, Ga.

    Approximately 1500 families and friends participated in the Consolidated Truck-or-Treat to build the community and family relationships on the Fort Stewart/Hunter Army Airfield installation.

    “We have soldiers from many different units coming together for the families of Hunter Army Airfield,” said Kristy Adams, a sports fitness and aquatic director for morale, welfare and recreation at Fort Stewart/Hunter Army Airfield. “The Soldier have opened and decorated their trunks to give out candy to the children.”

    Getting children hyped up on candy is just one of the things that has happen at Trunk-or-Treat.

    “The Soldiers are competing for the best decorated trunk judged by the garrison commander and command sergeant major,” said Adams. “Following that they will judge the children for the best costume.”

    The night was still young as the children glee going to trunk to trunk to receive their candy but the spirit of Halloween at some trunks was in full effect.

    “I am portraying a blind serial killer surgeon who wields a blunt chainsaw to amputate limbs of my unsuspecting victims,” said Garret Vallade, a CH-47 Chinook mechanic from Company B, 603rd Aviation Support Battalion, 3rd Combat Aviation Brigade. “When I slowly walk to the trunk of my car and rev my chainless chainsaw the kids get quite a shock.”

    Some of the children walked away from Vallade trunk with no candy not willing to trust a man with a chainsaw but his wife, Claudine the good witch, ensured the children could walk away with happy smiles as they received candy from her.

    “This the third time me and my wife and children have participated in the Consolidated Trunk-or-Treat and by far this is the biggest community turnout by far,” said Vallade. “My family will participate for next year, it is fun for everyone."

    As the wave of families slowly dwindle, every child happily walked with their decorative Halloween pail filled to the brim with candy, turns another successful Consolidated Trunk-or Treat with sweets and sweet dreams.
