MANAMA, Bahrain — In Bahrain, servicemembers deployed on ships welcomed a Thanksgiving meal on dry land; in Qatar, airmen got wet, as they all made the best of a holiday spent deployed.
As is tradition, officers at both Al-Udaid Air Base in Qatar and Naval Support Activity Bahrain served the holiday meal.
At Al-Udaid, servicemembers participated in a pool parade, paddling makeshift boats.
At Naval Support Activity Bahrain, some personnel shared what they were thankful for.
