Mike Kucharek, Spokesman, NORAD

It's that most wonderful time of the year again. And as Santa gears up for his annual flight, NORAD (North American Aerospace Defense Command) prepares to track his progress. That will happen, as it always has, on Dec. 24, and Santa's location will be available to all the little and not-so-little prying eyes who can't wait for those shiny boots to drop down through their chimneys. Mike Kucharek is a spokesman for NORAD. He joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive to offer some insight into this annual event, starting with how it began.
