Military Photo of the Day: Praying Before the Thanksgiving Meal at Al Asad Air Base in Iraq
U.S. troops bow their heads in prayer before eating Thanksgiving dinner at Al Asad Air Base in Iraq on November 26, 2020.
One year after the above photo was taken, about 3,400 deployed warriors still serving in Iraq and neighboring Syria are celebrating Thanksgiving while separated from their families. The Stream thanks these American heroes, their loved ones and the entire military community for sacrificing so much to keep us safe. Happy Thanksgiving!
