A North American Aerospace Defense Command website showing Santa Claus delivering presents while flanked by fighter jets has some child advocates raising concerns about Saint Nick’s new travel companions.

NORAD Tracks Santa, operated by the joint U.S.-Canada command, has provided children with information about Santa’s whereabouts since 1955. In recent years, Santa updates have included animated videos showing Santa on his flight path.

In addition to Santa’s traditional sleigh and reindeer, NORAD has added an animated fighter plane escort to give a realistic feel to the popular program, a command spokesman told Reuters.

“We wanted to let folks know that, hey, this is a NORAD video, and we’re the military and this is our mission,” Navy Captain Jeff Davis said.
