In 33 years this was my first Thanksgiving away from home. Not only was I not home, I wasn't even in the US due to being in the giant sandbox. Thankfully though the military went all out to make our Thanksgiving here on Camp Victory as special as possible. Here is a little taste of our Thanksgiving dinner.
Normally the servers are TCN's (Third Country Nationals), but today we were served by senior officers and senior NCOs (Non-Commissioned Officers). It was cool to be served turkey by a two star general =)
Following is a few pics of the decorations and food served sometimes both:
One of the decorations that caused many passerbys to ask why was there a Church for Thanksgiving. I guess they forget that the Pilgrims came for religious freedom and I also wonder who they think the Pilgrims were saying thanks to on the first thanksgiving!
I guess they were trying to help us feel like we were home b/c definitely nothing like this over here =)
Have no idea what a dragon has to do with Thanksgiving. Guess someone just wanted to show off their creative abilities.
While I was bummed to miss my first Thanksgiving at home, I still have plenty of things to be thankful for. Here is just a short list:
Hope everyone has a very blessed and Happy Thanksgiving!
