Ramstein leadership joins Airmen, celebrates Thanksgiving
Chief Master Sgt. Aaron Bennett, 86th Airlift Wing command chief, serves meals during Thanksgiving at Ramstein Air Base, Germany, Nov. 23, 2017. Every year at Ramstein, leadership across the Kaiserslautern Military Community visits the base’s dining facility to cook food and meet Airmen during Thanksgiving. Menu items included turkey, prime rib, ham, mashed potatoes and dressing. 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 Staff Sergeant Tory Patterson)
