The DoD is also sending these main dishes downrange:

4,925 whole turkeys

44,384 lbs of shrimp

43,648 pounds of ham

This year's total Thanksgiving fixings are significantly higher than that of three years ago, which was more than 63 tons.

In addition to turkey and other meats for this year's holiday feast, the Department of Defense has sent the following fixings to the frontlines:

27,605 lbs of sweet potatoes

39,797 pies

7,032 cakes

5,804 gallons of eggnog

These holiday rations will go to field kitchens, dining facilities and galleys for troops in the Middle East, Europe, Africa, Korea, Japan, Qatar and Honduras.

And we got the president serving the troops aat Bagram Air Base.

From Here's How Much Turkey and Pie Is Being Sent to Deployed Troops Around the World

I grew up in homes where Thanksgiving meals were big affairs with lots of people. So, I dreaded my first one in the military and was quite pleased when it turned out to be a big deal. It was the same cooks and place as always but somehow different. I know just how much having a meal like that means to troops far from home.
