Nichols was the 8th winner of the ‘Operation Home for the Holidays’ campaign, which randomly gifts one active-duty military member stationed in the Eglin Air Force Base area, the chance to win a free roundtrip flight home to visit loved ones over the holiday season. The VPS director of the campaign made the dream of going home a reality for seven previous junior enlisted military members in the Gulf Coast area. (U.S. Air Force photo by Matthew Veasley)
