Usually I go all out...Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. Some of the best Thanksgiving memories involve my house, my family of three and at least 10+ single soldiers/airmen at our house. When I was a young single airman, a few of us dorm rats spent the day alone, ate chow hall food, and I vowed from then on that there is a standing open invite for any single soldier/airman to enjoy a nice home cooked dinner with my family. Since we have been in recruiting duty, most his soldiers here are from Iowa and have family here. I miss those days.
