I have wanted to serve those who otherwise wouldn’t have a Thanksgiving Day feast for quite a while. I always imagined doing this at a soup kitchen in the city (Chicago), but last year we heard of a wonderful opportunity to do something similar very close to our home. So we signed up to serve. The turnout was huge - almost 200 Navy servicemen and a few homeless as well. It was our privilege to serve these young (very young) men who have committed to serving and protecting us. I tried my best to make sure everyone at my table had what they wanted. It was a pleasure to wait on them. They were very polite and respectful.
Miles wished each man a Happy Thanksgiving and made a few friends.
People behind the scenes have very important jobs too.
I hope that my family will always have giving hearts.
