Troops deployed around the world, including in war zones, took a moment’s respite from their efforts to keep America safe to film Thanksgiving greetings for family and friends back home in videos posted by the Pentagon.
“I just want to say Happy Thanksgiving to my wife, my two little boys, and also say happy birthday to my little boy turning three, and a shoutout to my mom and my sister, and love what we’re doing,” said Army Sgt. Joe Brewster with the 87th Sapper Company deployed to Arizona to support the border mission.
Navy Cmdr. Chawn Brown, from Suffolk, Virginia, wished his family Happy Thanksgiving from aboard the U.S. Navy hospital ship USNS Comfort, which is on an 11-week medical support mission to help Central and South Americans.
