Thanksgiving during WWII…

They’re celebrating Thanksgiving on this very day,My thoughts are at home, though I’m far away;I can see everyone, eating dinner deluxe,Whether it be chicken, turkey or even duck;The fellows over here won’t whimper or moan,They’ll look to the next one and hope to be home. Truly and honestly, from way down deep,They want you to be happy and enjoy your feast.These holidays are remembered by one and all,Those happy days we can always recall.The ones in the future, will be happier, I knowWhen we all come back from defeating the foe. _______Poem by an Anonymous WWII Veteran
