We had a great Thanksgiving meal at the dining hall today. Real turkey, cornbread stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, and pumpkin pie. I was so stuffed that I almost had to ride in a wheelbarrow to get back to my living quarters!
We had some distinguished visitors from the states (can't say who - OPSEC) and it was nice to see some elected officials give up Thanksgiving with their families to be with us. We did the same for them.
Oh, and Matt from Froggy Ruminations has a great post about President Bush's surprise trip to Baghdad for Thanksgiving two years ago. The president's speech then is even more applicable today.
