HALO also explores the impact of such rigorous training on the
families that support these unusual soldiers.


Lighting of the National Christmas Tree (formerly The Christmas Pageant of Peace)

For nearly 20 years, The Johnson Group produced the annual lighting of the National Christmas Tree. For one special night of the year, The Ellipse near the White House becomes America’s town square. More than 7,000 visitors and neighbors in the Capital area gather to hear the President’s Christmas message and to watch as he lights the National Christmas Tree. For years on end, The Johnson Group hosted some of America’s favorite entertainers to participate in the lighting ceremony.
