Siberian army helps orphan who asked for tank ride as New Year gift


NOVOSIBIRSK


Siberian officers fulfilled the wish of an orphan, who asked for a tank ride as a New Year present, a spokesman for the Central Military District said on Wednesday.
The boy wrote a letter to Grandfather Frost, Russia's New Year gift-giver, saying that he wanted to become a tank officer and asked for an opportunity to meet "real tank crew members" and sit in a tank turret.
The letter fell into the hands of local TV journalists, who handed it over to Major Gen. Vasily Tonkoshkurov, the commander of the Novosibirsk-based 41st Army.
"We were deeply touched by the letter and could not help but grant his wish," military spokesman Yuri Sivokhin said.
In late November, about 20 children from the orphanage were taken to a training ground near Novosibirsk, where officers showed them various military equipment, including tanks.
"You should have seen the eyes of those boys. It moved us to tears," Sivokhin said.
After the visit, the 41st Army decided to take the orphanage under its patronage. The commander with a group of officers and a military orchestra visited the orphanage on Wednesday to congratulate children on the New Year and bring them presents.

Its amazing how the joyous innocence of kids can move people everywhere, from India to Belfast to even a Novosibirsk Army Commander!



That is however, not so with Jihadmongers anywhere , on New Year's eve in Russia, Moslem terrorists shot KBR MVD's Commander and also his little children (8 & 11), the Col. died on the spot but mercifully the kids are expected to survive their bullet wounds. It pains me to think how the kids will now see every new year not as a time for celebration but the day their father was killed in front of their eyes.
