Operation Christmas Drop is a 2020 American Christmas romantic comedy film directed by Martin Wood from a screenplay by Gregg Rossen and Brian Sawyer.

Congressional aide Erica (Graham) forgoes family Christmas to travel at her boss’s behest.
At a beachside Air Force base, she clashes with Captain Andrew Jantz (Ludwig), who knows her assignment is finding reasons to defund the facility.
The base has a yearly tradition of airlifting goods to the citizens of Guam for Christmas. Andrew shows Erica around the base and various islands and demonstrates that the tradition is worthwhile and the base should not be closed. Romance between Erica and Andrew blooms during these events.
The film is loosely based on the real-life US Air Force Operation Christmas Drop humanitarian mission.
