Especially those serving oversea's
away from their families!

You guys and gals are NOT forgotten!

A Soldier's Thanksgiving by Mariane Holbrook

Over there a soldier's thinking
Of a time not long ago,
When his loved ones got together;
'Twas Thanksgiving Day, you know.

Over there a soldier's dreaming
Of a turkey baked just right,
Mashed potatoes, golden gravy,
Chestnut dressing, pure delight!

Over there a soldier's hungry
For whipped cream on pumpkin pie.
Squares of cornbread, crusts so tender,
Homemade biscuits stacked up high.

Over there a soldier's wishing
He could have one buttered roll.
But he feasts on GI rations
While his unit's on patrol.

Over there a soldier's lying
In a ditch, his makeshift bed.
Mud and dirt are his companions;
Been awhile since he's been fed.

Over there a soldier's praying
That his open sores will heal.
He is sure that he'll feel better
Once he has a good hot meal.

Over there a soldier's hearing
Loud explosions, muffled cries.
Shrapnel killed his foxhole buddy
Right before his very eyes.

Over there a soldier's quoting
Scriptures learned at Mother's knee,
Proud that he's a mighty warrior,
Keeping all his loved ones free.

This Thanksgiving as you're eating
That sweet corn that grandpa grew,
Say a prayer for that dear soldier
Who would love to be with you.

On this Thanksgiving, America remembers
the men and women of our military....
May God love, bless and protect you all.

Thanks, Scotty!

Here's hoping those overseas get to take some down time, enjoy some good grub and watch some football. MOst importantly, that they are able to stay safe and return to their loved ones unharmed.

Today we had a log of white turkey meat and a log of dark turkey meat along with some good cake. It is always good to get some hot food out here in Afghanistan!

I can remember alot of Thanksgivings away from Home in Far Off Places or at sea while I was in the U.S. Navy. On the Thanksgivings where I was Home (when I was married) I would invite the single guys to my home for a Home cooked meal, so that they did not have to spend Thanksgiving on the Ship.
