Frisky’s Happy Thanksgiving in 2015!

No doubt Frisky enjoyed his first postwar Thanksgiving 70 years ago and the many since then.  And well he should, having served the nation so well in World War II.

He could probably reflect that his was not the first, nor would it be the last, generation of servicemen and women to celebrate a Thanksgiving, in peace or at war.  And he probably did well to remember that through it all in his wartime experience, training, deployment, combat, the heat, the cold, even loss, or return, to “…give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” (1 Thessalonians 5:18)

On this Thanksgiving Day, 2015, take a look back at how America’s servicemen and women have celebrated Thanksgiving, courtesy of John Clark at the Task & Purpose web log, in his posting “Thanksgiving Through The Years And Wars,” at:  http://taskandpurpose.com/thanksgiving-through-the-years-and-wars/

To all who served with Frisky in the 371st Fighter Group, assigned, or attached, family and friends, a wish for a Happy Thanksgiving!  We have much to be grateful for.
