Happy Thanksgiving!

From Kandahar, Afghanistan, Happy Thanksgiving everyone!  All of us wish we could be home with our family sharing this day.  I especially wish I could spend it with Barby and Violet.  However, I am very thankful to be alive by God's grace and mercy today.  I'm thankful for a country that allows us freedom and for the cost so many before us in uniform have paid to make us free.  I'm reminded of the first pilgrim thanksgiving and some of the foundational and patriarchal traditions that were passed down from it.  Thanksgiving is a time to remember.  May the Lord Jesus Christ bless you and your family today as we are also reminded to be thankful for the price He paid for us on the cross in our place.

Me about to enjoy the spread of food. We had a US Military only 'dinner' serving time of 11am-12:30pm at the DFAC I went to, so it was a big lunch.

Gary Sinise serving us

Giant cake that says 'Hanks Giving'! Thanks Hank! Not sure if someone took the T or if this is what they really meant. Reminds me of poor English translations we see of other languages.

Eagle ice sculpture. Not sure how they kept it ice...

Sunset on Thanksgiving.

Viewing North. It's mostly always blue sky and sunny. We don't get too many cloudy days around here.
