Thanksgiving 2008 in Afghanistan was very memorable. The Brigade Commander directed Each soldier would be provided a hot Turkey dinner regardless of where they were or what their COP, FOB, or patrol base was capable of providing. Every Outpost was pushed the appropriate supplies/equipment and confirmed receipt except one in Khost province. An austere platoon outpost with little organic food service capability. The day before, we LCLA dropped new platoon sized group rations with internal heaters with all the supporting equipment etc into their COP's HLZ.

One of my favorite memories is a Thanksgiving in Germany. Our small (5-6 person) office had a mannequin - I have no idea where it came from or how long it had been there - dressed as a German police officer. We called him Fritz. The NCOIC of the office and his wife invited everyone over to their quarters for Thanksgiving, and when we arrived, there was Fritz with a sign around his neck that said "Happy Thanksgiving"! That's a fond memory.
