Military Monday – Guess Who is Coming to Dinner?

I think this is a fair enough question. Therefore, I decided to do what I always do when I want to find out information on one subject or another. I Googled it. This is what I found out. It would seem that David Beckham, his wife Victoria and their three children will be going to Germany for Thanksgiving to visit with the troops. I found this quite interesting since I do not think they are even American citizens. I could be wrong about that.

Brokedown Cadillac, a Nashville county music group will visit troops stationed in Iraq for the Thanksgiving holiday. The band members say they have close ties to the military and that is why they feel honored to spend the holiday with troops. The Band wants to spend time with those who cannot spend Thanksgiving with their own families.

On November 23, 2007, then President George W. Bush made a surprise Thanksgiving visit to the troops stationed in Iraq. He spent 2 ½ hours visiting with the troops and even helped serve Thanksgiving dinner.

I wonder what President Obama plans to do for Thanksgiving? Play golf? Spend time with his family? Walk the dog?  I have a good hunch that he will not be going to Afghanistan. Or even Iraq. After all, he has been traveling quite a bit lately. He probably needs time to get over the jet lag.
