Thanksgiving at Eskan Village

Have you ever wondered what it is like for US service members serving overseas during the holidays? This is how Thanksgiving was celebrated, after the September 11th terrorist attacks, at Eskan Village which is 22 miles outside of Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. The funny thing was that the only real turkey was the one on display. The rest was typical processed turkey that is given to the military. Considering the events that took place two months earlier it is no wonder everything looked so serious.
