Editors note: This rendition of "A Visit from St. Nicholas" by Clement Clarke Moore was written by Task & Purpose senior reporter James Clark, who included photos he took during his 2011 deployment to Kajaki and Sangin, Afghanistan with 1st Battalion, 6th Marines.
'Twas the night before Christmas,
When all through the war zone,
Not a creature was stirring, not even a drone
Coyote brown beanies were donned with care,
In the hopes that first sergeant would not be there
