Thanksgiving Day Menu Vietnam 1966:  		This is the actual menu that was given to each soldier on Thanksgiving  Day.  The US Army always tried to provide a traditional Thanksgiving  meal to us regardless of where we were.  I don’t think we had  everything listed on the menu, but many of the items were there.  The  cooks always did their best on Thanksgiving Day.  It was always a  special day in the Army.
