Artifact of the Month

Thanksgiving Menu

Soldiers often stationed far from home during holidays are usually treated to special meals, not the usual Army food, to mark the occasion. Units will sometimes create a menu to show the soldiers what food they can expect for their Thanksgiving dinner. This menu, also containing a unit roster, was created by the Soldiers of the Ft. Eustis Station Hospital. The Soldiers of this unit celebrated the Thanksgiving holiday while stationed at Fort Eustis, Virginia, in 1949.
