AFGHAN THANKS­GIV­ING

The Washington Times Daily - - World -

Most of U.S. troops in Afghanistan will cel­e­brate Thanks­giv­ing with a tra­di­tional tur­key din­ner with all the trim­mings.

“Other than that, it will be op­er­a­tions as usual,” said Lt. Col. David Si­mons, spokesman for the In­ter­na­tional Se­cu­rity As­sis­tance Force (ISAF).

Col. Si­mons tells In­side the Ring that some troops will have ac­cess to a satel­lite broad­cast of the NFL game be­tween the Bal­ti­more Ravens and Pitts­burgh Steel­ers.

ISAF Com­man­der Ma­rine Gen. Joseph Dun­ford had no mes­sage for the troops. But the gen­eral will be serv­ing food at some Afghan out­posts.
