I found this video on YouTube from the 2010 Camp Arifjan Thanksgiving dinner. Everything today looked pretty much the same but I didn't take pictures. * Update: Today (November 25th) the video is blocked but I can't figure out how to remove it from this post. :( * Sorry, It's been on YouTube for a year so I thought it was safe to post.
Today I was invited to attend Thanksgiving Dinner on Camp Arifjan. We all met up at one location and then made our way to the best chow hall. The first thing that struck me was the fun decorations that were everywhere. Nothing fancy when you walk in the front door but it just put you in the holiday spirit. Then there was the friendly personnel that greeted you at the door.
Once inside you could smell the delicious food which made my tummy growl. I was starving and wanted to skip in line (like they do off base) but I wanted to live until tomorrow! There were so many choices and I took a little bit of this and a little bit of that. Before I knew it my plate was full. Then the sweetest gentleman put a large slice of cake on my tray. As if things could get any better I found a milkshake bar with more cakes. There were ice, fruit, butter and cheese sculptures everywhere. They did a really nice job. Everyone seemed to have the Thanksgiving spirit and I loved spending this day with my friends and the true heroes of America, our Armed Forces.
Thank you to all of the US military men and women, the DOD and contractors who serve and protect our country. God bless America, Kuwait and Happy Thanksgiving y'all! :D
