Gen. Tod D. Wolters, U.S. Air Forces in Europe and Air Forces Africa commander, talks with Staff Sgt. Shane Farkas, 786th Force Support Squadron Rheinland Inn Dining Facility production manager, as they prepare meals for Airmen during a Thanksgiving lunch at Ramstein Air Base, Germany, Nov. 24, 2016. The event was open to all DoD ID card holders, retirees and family members. Senior leaders serving meals on Thanksgiving to Airmen and their families is a longstanding tradition that allows them to spend time with servicemembers during the holiday. In the U.S., the modern Thanksgiving holiday tradition can trace its origins back to 1621 in the heart of a newly-founded city called Plymouth in present-day Massachusetts. However, the first nationwide Thanksgiving proclamation was made by the first president of the U.S., George Washington, in 1789. Since then, the holiday has been celebrated by an entire nation to recount the blessings of the year. (U.S. Air Force photo by Airman 1st Class Lane T. Plummer)
