"Snowball Express" Helps Military Families

Family members of fallen military are boarding the "Snowball Express" for a weekend trip.

American Airlines sponsors the program that takes children and spouses of fallen heroes on a trip.

This year, about 2,000 people are getting an all-expenses paid trip to the Dallas/Ft. Worth area.

The holidays can be a difficult time for those who have lost a loved one, so the trips are to help people cope.

"This is our fifth year going," says Crystal Woodham. "Each year is different and we have a blast every year."

She and her two kids are flying out of Tulsa International Airport.

They say the group plans to go to Six Flags and they will hear Gary Sinese perform.
