The most unusual sight that Mr. LaPrad has seen since arriving in the country occurred while he was on a helicopter flight. The outer areas of the country appear to be about 100 years behind us; many people live in mud huts and do not have electricity. That is just one additional reason for us to be thankful for all that we have. Speaking of thankfulness, we wondered how our troops would be spending the Thanksgiving holidays. Mr. LaPrad said that the mess hall workers would cook up a traditional Thanksgiving feast for everyone to make it feel as "home-like" as possible.
Please remember to keep all of our service men, women, and other Americans that are helping people in countries such as Afghanistan and Iraq in your thoughts and prayers over the holidays. Thank you for your time and service.
Happy Thanksgiving, Mr. LaPrad!
